Lanham, Md. - Oakland delivered 140 backpacks filled with school supplies to the Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) Social Services Department this August. The backpacks are distributed to foster, homeless, and other at-risk children at the start of the school year. Oakland was able to donate 40% more backpacks than last year, due to the generosity of its employees and contract personnel. The company matched every dollar donated.

Oakland is providing business support services to the Montgomery County Police Department, Liquor Control Department, and Department of Health and Human Services. As of September 4, 35 Oakland staff will be supporting these contracts.

This is the fourth consecutive year Oakland has donated assembled backpacks to PGCPS. Oakland personnel assembled the backpacks with supplies in a conference room; the composition of the backpacks differed for elementary, middle, and high school students.

“Giving back to our community is an important part of Oakland’s mission,” said Oakland President and CEO Cedric E. Nash. “I sincerely appreciate the generosity our staff has shown to support education and learning services in in the communities where we work and live.”
