Helping Thousands of Youth Across San Diego with Fully Loaded Backpacks to Start the Year Off Right
Every child looks forward to the first day of school with a varied mixture of anticipation and dread. Sometimes one outweighs the other, but one of the things that weighs on many kids in San Diego County is having the supplies they need for the new school year.
And oftentimes it’s their parents that worry about that the most.
[h3] When You Need a Lot of Backpacks Filled Quickly and Efficiently
Each year, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego launches a major volunteer event known as the Back 2 School Drive.
The objective is to receive and fill as many backpacks as possible with supplies and tools local school kids will need to achieve academic success in the new school year. Once those backpacks and supplies have been donated, a small army of volunteers come together to sort the materials according to the needs of kindergarten through fifth grade, and for those in sixth through twelfth grades.
Then the stuffing begins!
Once they have been filled, the backpacks are distributed to elementary through high school-aged students who are participating in Boys & Girls Club programs across San Diego County prior to the start of the fall school year.
This year, some of those volunteers wore Junk King red!
Several happy and willing Junk King San Diego employees joined the dozens of other hard-working volunteers to sort, separate, stuff, and organize thousands of kids backpacks to help them be ready for the new school year.
And the guys with the red Junk King hats will tell you that, while deeply gratifying, the work of carefully placing school supplies into kid-sized backpacks was probably harder than loading old furniture and other household junk into the back of one of their junk trucks!
School Supplies and Backpacks for Thousands of Children Takes Many Volunteers
Whether they volunteered their time or donated backpacks and school supplies, many wonderful people joined together and played a vital role in giving local children a positive start to the new school year.
And it is because of them that the Boys & Girls Club of Greater San Diego was able to provide over 4,000 youth across San Diego with fully loaded backpacks to start the year off right.
It was the combined efforts of many dozens of volunteers who worked together to accomplish a hugely impressive effort on behalf of school children across the greater San Diego region.
As the Director of Corporate Partnerships, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego, Sommer Cartier, was quoted as saying,
“The start of the school year can be incredibly stressful for many families across San Diego. Without access to resources and support, it can be difficult to provide children with the supplies needed to start the school year off right. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego’s Back 2 School Drive exists to help ease the pressure families face each fall by preparing their students heading back to school. Thanks to the support of generous community partners, our Boys & Girls Club members start each new school year with the essential supplies needed to excel in the classroom.”
Many San Diegans are familiar with the Boys & Girls Club. Some have children who are part of the organization and make great use of their many after-school programs. And many of the parents were part of the Boys & Girls Club when they were kids, too!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego works to change lives with their quality youth programs and guidance that take place in a safe, affordable, and fun environment. The Clubs serve kids from ages 5 to18 at 20 community-based sites across San Diego County. These facilities are making a real difference in the lives of San Diego’s leaders of tomorrow – the San Diego youth of today.
And because of the volunteers working with its Back 2 School Drive, the Boys & Girls Club members are able to receive all the basic necessities they need to start their school year off right.
And the Volunteers Earned a High Score
- One Junk King truck and Crew
- 3,000 backpacks filled
- Separated for K thru 5 and 6 thru 12 grades
- Over 4,000 kids across San Diego given loaded backpacks
- And all done in a day!
Why Junk King San Diego is About More than Just Junk Removal
Junk King owner Bruce Stone has always made it his mission to give back to his community and to do all that he can in his role as a business owner to support it, as well.
One of the ways he and his team are able to do this on a daily basis is through the green and earth-friendly junk removal practices Junk King follows. For the folks at Junk King San Diego, the city and its neighboring communities are more than just where they work every day – it’s their home.
And looking out for and taking care of your home means much more than keeping it cleaned up.
Junk King employees are regularly engaged in civic and community events and various types of volunteer efforts. Whether its backpacks with school supplies for kids, or a holiday toy drive, or cleaning up a high school in preparation for graduation – our team is ready and willing to “go the extra mile” for our friends and neighbors in the Greater San Diego area.
No Matter Your Cleanup or Junk Removal Problem, Junk King San Diego has the Solution
At Junk King San Diego we always do our best to provide San Diego residents and businesses with the best in junk removal services and the best in customer service. We also do our best to ensure that our pricing is the best in our market. And one way we do that is with our much more equitable approach to pricing each job, and one that is guaranteed to save you money.
So, how does it work, you ask?
Unlike most other junk removal services that charge by weight, Junk King only charges by volume. Another way to say it is that we only charge you for how much space your residential or commercial junk takes up in our oversized junk removal trucks.
That means you don’t pay more for removing one heavy junk item than someone else is paying to remove a half dozen lightweight items, for example. This makes the process simple, fair, and saves you money! And because our trucks are larger, we don’t have to make as many trips, and you can get more removed in one trip from us than with our competitors.
You can rest assured that we will never add on extra charges nor surprise you with hidden fees of any kind. In fact, we guarantee to outdo any other written estimate. In fact, we’ll provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate of your next junk removal project before you agree to work with us.
That’s because we are so confident that our prices are better than any comparable operator in our area.
And, by comparable operator, we mean any licensed, insured, junk removal company in the greater San Diego area that operates a recycling-based operation and works to keep our landfills free of unnecessary waste materials.
Which is how Junk King San Diego operates, by the way!
Green Junk Removal in Large, Red Trucks – the Junk King Way
Junk King has long prided itself on being the pioneer of recycling-based junk removal and we live up to that ideal by recycling as much as 65 percent or more of everything we pick up each day.
“Recycling is very, very important” says owner Bruce Stone, “When we’re doing this, we’re really working in conjunction with the community and we’re working with the environment, and everything that we’re striving for is to create a better tomorrow for our kids and the other generations.”
