Hill & Markes Backpack Drive
In the months of July and August, Hill & Markes held a Backpack Drive to benefit children in need across Montgomery County. Hill & Markes employees teamed up with vendors and local companies such as, GOJO, United Stationers, MVP, Price Chopper, Walgreens, The Mental Health Association of Fulton and Montgomery Counties and more to collect backpacks and school supplies. Monetary donations were matched by Hill & Markes to reach a collected total of $498.00. These donations were used to purchase additional backpacks and school supplies for a total of 94 backpacks.
The backpacks will be donated to the Fulmont Community Action Program which will then be distributed to the children in need. This program has three offices located in Amsterdam, Fonda and Fort Plain where backpack signup’s have been held for the donations.
The Hill & Markes family strongly believes in being a good corporate citizen and is proud to help local children in need.
