*Back to School is a $27.5 Billion Industry*
For the 2018-2019 school year, the National Retail Foundation (NRF) shared survey results showing that families with children in elementary through high school spent approximately $152 per child to purchase school supplies. That amount does not include any additional costs associated with buying new clothes, shoes, electronics and other needed items, the estimated total costs associated with back-to-school items purchased in 2018 was projected at $27.5 billion.
As a parent of three, attorney Kevin Rowe shares why he believes this Back to School Backpack Giveaway serves an important purpose in Nashville. “I have one child in college and two others who will eventually be following in her footsteps. So, I get that the cost of purchasing school supplies can easily add up, especially in families with multiple children. That is why our team seeks out opportunities to give back to local community members who may need an extra hand making ends meet. Ultimately, we want to try and help alleviate the obstacles for an education.”
Those interested in attending are advised to arrive early as supplies are limited and will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis while they last.
