Filling Backpacks for CPS

In August, ACB employees purchased toiletries, socks, and games and stuffed backpacks for the Mississippi Department of Child Protective Services.  As children are removed from dangerous situations, they sometimes only have the clothes on their backs.  These stuffed backpacks aimed to provide a bit of comfort during an unstable time as well as providing basic necessities.  Backpacks were labeled according to the age and gender of child they were intended for.  Representative Thomas Dent was very excited for the donation and thanked all the employees for their efforts to help local kids when they need it most.

*The ACB Philanthropy Committee was formed to spearhead efforts to help charities in the area and we aim to complete one project each quarter.  ACB employees have huge hearts when it comes to giving to local organizations and all employees participate in these efforts.
