KNR to Give Away 100 Backpacks Filled With School Supplies to Ohio ParentsAug 10, 2017 News Articles – Press Release
Akron, OH, August 10, 2017– Ohio based personal injury law firm, Kisling, Nestico & Redick (KNR) is proud to announce the third annual KNR School Supply Giveaway happening now through August 18th, 2017, on the firm’s Facebook page. KNR will award 100 parents with backpacks loaded with the most common classroom items requested by elementary school teachers throughout the state, just in time for the new school year.
Included in each bag, valued at $54.00 each, are pencils, pens, notebooks, markers, glue, paper, highlighters, binders, and other fundamental supplies essential to a child’s learning at school. The event is inspired by the increasing burden families and teachers must bear in the face of rising costs to send children back to school each year.
“One in every five school-age child lives in poverty, making it difficult for parents to afford these supplies. When you factor in that teachers themselves spend, on average, $578.00 of their own salary to fund school supplies for their classrooms each year, the idea to host a giveaway seemed like the right thing to do for our community,” says Managing Partner Rob Nestico.
Since the giveaway first began, KNR has more than doubled the amount of supplies given away.
“We are fortunate to have a company like W.B. Mason who contributed office supplies last year. This year, they donated the backpacks so we could fill them full with classroom items,” Nestico adds.
Team KNR participates in many charitable events throughout the year. To date, the firm has raised more than $400,000 for local charities and organizations. For more information about this event, Team KNR’s charitable contributions, or to learn more about the KNR, call 1-800-HURT-NOW or visit www.knrlegal.com.
