Annual Back to School Drive “Stuff the Backpacks” Event Aug. 4, 2016

This is the 6th year the HCA North Florida Division has joined with the administration team at Capital Regional Medical Center to conduct an annual back to school drive to help area agencies.  More than 90% of division employees and 100% of CRMC’s administration team participated by making donations or volunteering to “adopt” children on their own.

This year, we are donating more than $3,000 in school supplies to the following agencies:

  • Children’s Home Society: 120+ backpacks stuffed with school supplies
  • Covenant Hospice’s Partners in Care-Together for Kids program: 30+ stuffed backpacks

During today’s event, employees are working together to “stuff” more than 125 backpacks with much-needed school supplies. The backpacks will be delivered to children in the community through the agencies listed above.
