MaintenX team members are happy to help support local children by participating in Metropolitan Ministries’ Backpacks of Hope school supply drive.

Making sure students are equipped to learn is of paramount importance, especially in this time of economic hardship.

For the second consecutive year, MaintenX International has proudly partnered with Metropolitan Ministries’ Backpacks of Hope drive to provide school supplies to needy children in Tampa. Equaling their 2019 donation, MaintenX employees filled 20 backpacks with more than $500 of supplies, ranging from notebooks to flash drives.

“Whether kids go back to school in person or learn from home, they still need these important items,” said Bill Schaphorst, MaintenX VP of Business Development. “Making sure students are equipped to learn is of paramount importance, especially in this time of economic hardship.”

The Backpacks of Hope drive helps more than 2,500 underprivileged Tampa children annually, giving them the tools to succeed at school. This year’s drive ran from July 15th through July 29th, with most-needed items including backpacks, uniforms, notebooks, binders, and calculators.

“I’m so proud of our employees,” continued Schaphorst. “Even with half our office working from home, we were still able to make a significant donation, which really speaks to the character and values of our whole team.”

MaintenX has a proud tradition of helping their local community, regularly participating in drives, walks, and even home-building projects. For more information about MaintenX, and to learn more about their commitment to the communities they serve, visit
