“Back Packs for the Homeless”

MSG was proud to participate in the Philadelphia area’s “Back Packs for the Homeless” Campaign this past holiday season.  The Back Packs program takes gently used back packs stuffed with snacks, hygiene products, small blankets, socks, gloves and other assorted goodies and delivers them to homeless persons in and around the Philadelphia area.

The collections started in early December and every employee contributed.  By early January, we had constructed 14 bags and had enough leftovers for the “Back Packs for the Homeless” organization to fill several shelves at their pantry.   Coordinating the entire effort (which was no easy task), was MSG’s own Kate Caceres.  Kate quantified, sorted and assured an equal probability of selection for each back pack much like she does when overseeing BRFSS related projects.  Kudos’s to you Kate!
