FFAM360 Continues Tradition of Back to School Backpack and Supply Drive

ATLANTA, Ga.—Each year, the FFAM360 offices in Atlanta, Phoenix, and Paso Robles organize a school supply drive to help families’ back to school efforts. This year’s drive collected backpacks and various school supplies, ensuring that 20 families and over 50 children arrive at school equipped and prepared to learn. Items collected include backpacks, supply boxes, glue sticks, binders, paper, crayons, pencils, tissues, and much more.

More than 15 million kids in the US live in extreme poverty and arrive at school without the necessary learning materials. Increasingly, teachers rely on families to provide many needed classroom items. For those already struggling to make ends meet, this time of year can be especially stressful. The FFAM360 annual back to school supply drive helps families fulfill classroom supply list requests.

“At FFAM360, supporting our communities is not just our corporate social responsibility, it’s our commitment to working for a greater purpose,” says President and Chief Investment Officer Matthew Maloney.  “For many parents, the financial burden of expensive school supplies can be a strain on an already tight budget. We are passionate about the youth in our communities and want to help them soar towards a brighter future. That’s why we sponsor local families and provide children with the materials that are essential for success.”
