The 2009 Backpack Heroes Campaign For Youth Villages Hopes To Provide An Estimated 300 Fully Stocked Backpacks By Wednesday, August 5, 2009

youthvillagesBRENTWOOD, TN – Crye-Leike, REALTORS agents are joining in the back to school shopping season – purchasing new backpacks and school supplies for the children in the care of Youth Villages.

It’s the 9th consecutive year Crye-Leike has joined in the agency’s Backpack Heroes campaign – to help see to it that these emotionally and behaviorally challenged children enjoy the same start to school as every other child. Everything that is collected will go to help local children in the Middle Tennessee area.

“Over 90% of these children live well below the poverty line and most cannot afford a backpack or school supplies for the upcoming school year,” said Harold Crye, Crye-Leike, REALTORS Cofounder and CEO. “This year Crye-Leike is again partnering with Youth Villages by collecting donations which will help provide these items to hundreds of children who have very little or nothing at all.”

Children and staff from Youth Villages prepare to pick-up nearly 300 donated backpacks from Crye-Leike, REALTORS Agents at the company's Brentwood West Regional Headquarters in August 2008
