Yesterday, JFS partnered with Definitive Healthcare, who donated supplies to pack 300 backpacks full of school supplies for children in our community who need it most! The team of packers included over 30 Definitive Healthcare associates, who generously donated their time to a day of service.
Thank you, Definitive Healthcare, for supporting our mission of Accelerating Social, Academic, and Health Equity!
The Build-a-Backpack event is part of JFS’s Pathways to Academic Growth, Empowerment and Success (PAGES) programming, formerly Reducing Achievement Gaps (RAG). PAGES is a unique, multi-tiered program focused on addressing the academic, social, and basic assistance needs of low-income children of immigrant families in Framingham.
