From early July to August 5th, the West Florida Green Team at Preferred Materials held a school backpack/supply drive to help benefit two local schools in the Tampa Bay area right in time for the new school year. The team collected over 530 items and was able to help Sheehy Elementary (Hillsborough County) and Fuguitt Elementary (Pinellas County). Green Team Captain, Maria Perez, said “The school principals were so happy to see us! They didn’t have any backpacks and they were so appreciative. I can’t tell you how many times they thanked us”.
