Pack Your Back Announces Support from Nestlé Waters North America for Holiday Program

Flint, Mich. – Pack Your Back announced today that Nestlé Waters North America will be underwriting the costs for over 6,500 toys that will be distributed at the 2nd Annual Pack Your Back: Stuff Your Stocking event. Stuff Your Stocking is taking place on December 22 at Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan, and will provide over 1,000 pre-registered children with toys, backpacks, school supplies, books, food boxes, and memories to last a lifetime.

“During this time of giving, it is important to help others in need,” said Galen Miller, Executive Director, Pack Your Back. “Without support from companies like Nestlé Waters North America, we would be unable to make such a massive impact in Flint, Michigan.”

After learning more about Pack Your Back, Nestlé Waters North America was eager to jump on board with the cause as part of their ongoing support in Flint. Pack Your Back was created in 2016 by Central Michigan University students who wanted to help the younger generation succeed. Over the course of this year alone, Pack Your Back was able to partner with a variety of organizations to help support more than 25,000 students.
