SAN FRANCISCO, CA (SEPTEMBER 2021). This year, Polaris Real Estate Partners celebrates the most successful completion of our annual back-to-school backpack giveaway tradition since we begin this eight years ago. Over the past month, 667 backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed to children and youth living in our community to help them prepare for the 2021-2022 school year.
As part of the company’s efforts to ensure a fun and safe event in each site, we combined the outdoor movie night and summer camp event with the backpack giveaway event. The events also offered food, entertainment, and resources about health, wellness, employment, family support, and other social services in the neighborhood. We also received a donation from Kidz World Dallas, who provided all the giveaway backpacks for Pacifica & Mill House communities.
Like many other aspects of life, schools are going to be different this year. Therefore, it is especially important for Polaris to honor this tradition to help provide reassurance and consistency in the ever-changing and unpredictable environment. “With COVID restrictions and uncertainty surrounding education currently, providing as much of a sense of normalcy as possible for kids is critical,” Polaris’ General Partner Travis Pacoe stated. “We hope that these backpacks help our communities’ children feel more grounded, and their parents supported, as they begin school this year.”
