School is right around the corner, Propel: Young Professionals wanted to help out a school in Garland ISD provide backpacks with supplies to their students. The goal for Propel was to donate 120 stuffed backpacks. With the help of many of the Garland Chamber members, Propel will be donating 143 stuffed backpacks, 80 individual backpacks, 6 teacher baskets and a check for $1500. These backpacks include supplies like spiral notebooks, pencils, glue sticks, scissors, filler paper and more.

A special THANK YOU to the Garland Chamber members who donated funds, supplies or hosted a collection box to help Propel meet their goal.
