XPO Logistics Donates $10K to Operation Backpack
Transportation powerhouse XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO) has announced its donation of $10,000 to Operation Backpack, providing thousands of children in need with new backpacks filled with school supplies.
Operation Backpack is a community service of nonprofit Volunteers of America-Greater New York that provides new, top quality backpacks filled with supplies to any child living in a New York City homeless or domestic violence shelter who needs one.
“Every kid deserves to go back to school with the supplies they need. It helps build confidence for the challenges ahead. We’re excited to support these children as they kick off a new school year full of possibilities,” said Troy Cooper, president of XPO Logistics.
Last year Operation Backpack equipped 20,000 children with a full backpack in time for the first day of school.
