3,200 Backpacks Donated through Project Fresh Start

As the 2022–2023 school year approaches, the Gene B. Glick Company wanted to ensure all youth residents have the tools that they need to start the school year off on the right foot. Glick team members rallied together to raise money through Project Fresh Start to purchase nearly 3,200 backpacks filled with essential school supplies. Backpacks and supplies will go to school-aged residents at 35 apartment communities across eight states.
