Nationwide Appraisal Network (NAN) Announces 3rd Annual Backpacks for Kids Drive

Tampa, FL: Nationwide Appraisal Network (NAN) Announced today that their 3rd annual backpack for kid’s drive is officially underway. The hope is to raise enough funds to provide 500 fully stocked backpacks to students in local area schools, including Belcher Elementary, Eisenhower Elementary and Skycrest Elementary.

“We do a lot of work in the local community and beyond”, says NAN Co-Founder Joni Pilgrim. “But I think I speak for most of our staff when I say that this is definitely one of our favorite projects. Children and education are close to our hearts and we work tirelessly to support our local schools and educators.

Co-Founder Cari Burris agrees. “I remember going back to school for a new year. There’s enough for kids to worry about. If a family is going through a tough time financially, then having a backpack and the right school supplies might not be on their list of concerns. And if we can fill 500 backpacks this year, it’ll be a huge help to a lot of deserving kids.”

NAN’s goal is to add more participating schools and enlist the help of major corporate sponsors and even sports organizations. “The more entities involved, the better,” says Pilgrim. “There can never be too much support for those who need a hand. All of our employees get involved. Not because they’re required to, but because we all love it,” says Burris. “There’s a great side benefit to giving…it’s not only bring aid to those we set out to help…it actually does a lot to bring our staff closer together. Working side by side on something like ‘Backpacks for Kids’ is a great way to strengthen our company from the inside out, and that’s better for everyone.”

NAN is looking for company sponsors to help reach the 2015 Backpacks for Kid’s goal. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Joni Pilgrim at:
