Hialeah, Florida – Thanks to a giveaway, hundreds of South Florida students went home with new backpacks and supplies.
On Friday, Coke Florida hosted its annual back-to-school backpack giveaway in Hialeah.
More than 300 students from Twin Lakes Elementary School received a bag filled with supplies to get them ready for their first day of school.
“As we all know, our parents are struggling just like most members in the community are,” said Twin Lakes Principal Ivette Bernal-Pino, “and school supplies is something that’s an added expense every year, and then having this opportunity is something that we’re so grateful that they chose our school for this event.”
Since the program began back in 2018, it’s the largest backpack giveback campaign Coke Florida has delivered.
The total value of the company’s back-to-school contributions now stands at more than $100,000.
