Hill & Markes Donates Backpacks to Local Schools
Hill & Markes Inc. recently hosted a backpack drive to benefit local schoolchildren.
Hill & Markes employees collaborated with manufacturers such as Essendant, GOJO Industries, Cascades, and the Clorox Co., parent company of Clorox Professional Products Co., to fill more than 200 backpacks with school supplies. The backpacks were distributed to students in the Greater Amsterdam School District in Amsterdam, New York; Johnstown Elementary in Johnstown, New York; and Liverpool Central School District in Liverpool, New York.
“The Backpack Drive was a way for Hill & Markes to get actively engaged in the future of many children attending school for the 2019-2020 academic year by providing the supplies necessary for schools to teach and children to learn,” stated Lindsay Countryman, human resource assistant at Hill & Markes. “Our goal was to help eliminate obstacles such as increasing technology costs, budget cuts, and poverty so the success of our teachers and their students continue.”
