As an employer who values education, ibMilwaukee hosted Operation Backpack, a community-wide rally to bring together West Allis and West Milwaukee businesses and local leaders to show the students and staff at Pershing Elementary that their community truly stands behind them.
The Milwaukee Bucks, the Milwaukee Admirals, QPS Employment Group, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Top Promotions, Essendant, DJ Fox, the Milwaukee Fire Department, the West Milwaukee Police Department, the West Allis Public Library and ibMilwaukee joined forces to host a fun and energizing back-to-school rally to kick the 2016-2017 school year off to a positive start. From frisbees and confetti, to music and games, sponsors, students, and staff celebrated as cries of ‘Happy School Year’ echoed across the playground.
The community sponsors and organizations and ibMilwaukee put together 300 backpacks full of necessary school supplies, with a few fun extras. This was enough to provide a stuffed backpack for every student at Pershing Elementary.Read more about this successful mission on our Blog .
