Give Back, Buy a Backpack - June campaign

The Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) and Comerica Bank have partnered to serve the most severely abused children in Dallas County. DCAC’s second annual Give Back, Buy a Backpack month-long campaign takes place this month, and Comerica Bank is the title sponsor. In 2013, 987 DCAC clients received backpacks filled with new school supplies.
 
This year, with the support of Comerica, DCAC will supply 1,000 children with backpacks and necessary supplies for a successful school year. The backpacks will also include school uniforms and gift cards for any extra items the children may need, including basics like underwear, shoes and socks.
 
President and CEO of the Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center, Lynn M. Davis states, “This campaign is a quick and easy way to make a difference in the life of a child, by providing them with the tools and resources they need to be successful in school. We are thankful for companies like Comerica who truly care about children in the Dallas Community.”
 
J. Patrick Faubion, Texas Market President for Comerica Bank, said “In addition to Comerica sponsoring the back to school drive, our volunteers are excited about helping stuff the backpacks with brand new supplies and clothing, and presenting the children and their families with their back to school kits in July.”
 
$25 donation provides a backpack and supplies for a child. To follow the campaign, visit dcac.org and sign up for the email updates. Individuals, companies, and organizations interested in volunteering with the campaign can contact Becky at baguilar@dcac.org.
