In partnership with Virginia Commonwealth University’s alumni organization, PCA’s full-line plant in Richmond, Virginia, recently offered its support to the Ultimate Backpack Supply Drive. The program provides students in the Richmond area with supply-filled backpacks as they begin a new year of school.
Steve Milby, a Sales Representative at the plant, and Jacob Modzelewski, a Shift Supervisor, became involved with the VCU drive earlier this summer. The Richmond plant produced bins for the collection of backpacks and supplies, and employees also donated pre-filled backpacks to the cause.
According to the plant’s Sales Manager, the response from PCA employees was enthusiastic, and they were eager to participate. “We hope to be even more involved next year, with volunteers from all departments and shifts purchasing supplies and filling backpacks,” he said.
