As summer draws to a close and schools once again open their doors, Yardstick employees are thrilled to wrap up our summer fundraising initiative.

Over the last few months, Yardstick staff in offices banded together to raise funds to buy school supplies for kids in need. After weeks and weeks of bake sales, silent auctions, wear-your-pyjamas-to-work days, and more, we connected with our community partners, Caring & Sharing Exchange and Start2Finish, to get matched up with local schools and plan our backpack stuffing events!

In total, Yardstick raised $7,083.65, enough to prepare almost 150 backpacks, with extra cash leftover to donate to our community partners and direct to local schools.

Thanks to everyone who supported Project Backpack 2019. Until next year!
