The New Albany HS Volleyball team loaded up on the bus and headed out on a road trip today. Instead of heading to a gym to take on another school, the Eagles made their way to a warehouse where thousands of backpacks and school supplies awaited them.
Part of the “Stuff the Backpack” campaign (sponsored by NBC4), the Eagles stuffed around 2,000 backpacks with supplies consisting of paper, pencils, crayons, scissors and more. They also packed over 3,000 backpacks into boxes and bags that will be picked up by central Ohio school districts. The backpacks that were stuffed today will join thousands more that are to be delivered to area students as they head back to the classrooms over the next couple of weeks.
The Eagles were honored to be part of the program and thankful for the opportunity to spend time together as a team, working with NBC4, and doing work that will bring joy to so many students throughout central Ohio.
