Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys: Changing Lives, One Backpack at a Time
At Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys, we believe that our kids are the future. When they have what they need to thrive, our communities win, too. That’s why we’re proud to announce the launch of Project Backpack: our team’s annual give-back event where we invest in the children in our community by providing them with backpacks filled with essential school supplies.
When Our Kids Win, Our Communities Win, Too
“My law firm is all about winning,” says founding attorney Andy Citrin. “That’s why we’re starting Project Backpack. We’re giving out 1,600 backpacks full of supplies to every student in three of our area’s neediest schools. We want our kids to be WINNERS, too.”
The coronavirus pandemic has continued to make this school year challenging for everyone; roughly one in four Alabama children live in poverty, compared to one in three kids in Mississippi. We believe that no child should go without the pencils and crayons they need because of circumstances beyond their control. We also know that to succeed, kids need consistent, long-term support from their communities. That’s why we’re so excited to hold our first annual Project Backpack event in January 2021.
Project Backpack will launch at participating elementary schools in every city where Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys has an office location.
This year’s chosen public schools are:
- Gilliard Elementary in Mobile, Alabama
- Magnolia Elementary in Foley, Alabama
- Arlington Elementary in Pascagoula, Mississippi
These backpacks are filled with everything kids need to have a successful school year, and we can’t wait to hear how they learn and grow, no matter what the school year brings.
Preparing Kids for a Winning 2021 School Year With Project Backpack
At Andy Citrin Injury Attorneys, we don’t set modest goals. When we go to bat for someone, whether that’s a person who’s been injured in a wreck or a local child who needs school supplies, we swing for the fences.
“Our kids are our future. We need to make sure they have all the tools they need to succeed,” says attorney Andy Citrin. “Our goal is to keep giving until we’ve reached every young child in Mobile, Pascagoula, and Baldwin County.”
Our next Project Backpack Back to School event will take place in August 2021 in Mobile, Foley, Montgomery, and Pascagoula.
