Fresh Pencils, Notebooks and a New Backpack


More than 175 Tri-Ed team members — that included 20 manufacturer partners — mobilized during a recent North American Sales Meeting to get backpacks filled with new school supplies to 450 needy children. Items included notebooks, folders, rulers, pencils, markers and other items children need to succeed at school.

The charity teambuilding event was sponsored by Tri-Ed and coordinated by Mission 500, a global non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of children and families. The backpacks will be delivered to children throughout the United States.
