OPinnacleART Supports Operation Backpackn August 10, PinnacleART participated in supporting the YMCA of Greater Houston’s Operation Backpack. Operation Backpack is an event held at the beginning of the school year to provide school supplies for children in neighboring communities so they can start school with the tools they need to be successful. For 2017, the Greater Houston area goal was to collect 120,000 backpacks.

This year, a team of PinnacleART employees got together and challenged their teams and peers to surpass last year’s total of 25 donated supply-filled backpacks. Through July 17th and August 9th, backpack and supply donations were accepted in each building on the PinnacleART campus, in addition to monetary donations.

After all the monetary donations were used to buy additional backpacks and supplies, the official 2017 PinnacleART backpack contribution more than doubled last year’s total with 55 total backpacks.

PinnacleART thanks each and every one of our employees who donated time, money, and/or supplies to the YMCA’s Operation Backpack!
