Backpack Drive for 2017 Nicaragua School Year
In preparation for the 2017 school year, the Command Medical Products FL family rallied to support their fellow coworkers in Nicaragua by donating resources to our first annual backpack drive. A total of 155 new backpacks of all kinds were filled with supplies and distributed to the parents working in Command Medical Products Managua, Nicaragua facility. Smiles were plentiful and families were able to take home the backpacks to their children prior to the school year, which starts in February.
