Backpack sort for Cypress.

Just wanted to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Emily, Laura, Becky, Rosetta, Anna, Catrina, Aidan, Juan, Brent, Jenna, Christian, and Brad for helping out with our Cypress Elementary School Backpack/School Supply sort today.

It was an insane 5 hours of filling 24 huge boxes with 265 girls and boys' backpacks, paints, wide-ruled paper, pencils galore, hand-sanitizer, glue, toothbrushes, games, snacks, underwear, socks, and Cypress t-shirts. These kids will be set!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you to those who put their time in today and who donated supplies and backpacks and money to make this happen. Thanks to Juan for the glorious t-shirt design! They look amazing! We'll be meeting at the office at 8:30am Monday to load up and take everything over to the school (if anyone wants to help). See you there!

That was seriously so so fun. Laura and I kept talking about how neat it was to get to be a part, and to stay until the very last box was full! I can't wait to hear how excited the kids are...
