2016 IB Day of Action Events

DOA_16_FB_profileCan you imagine going to school without a backpack, notebook paper, pencils? Each year, millions of children start out the new school year without having the necessary materials to help them learn and succeed in the classroom.

To do our part in helping children prepare for the new school year, The Injury Board is hosting the 3rd Annual IB Day of Action (#IBDayofAction), a collaborative effort between IB member firms, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s Network of Clubs and other youth organizations across the U.S.

This August, member firms will help to empower and support our youth for the upcoming school year and beyond by providing in-kind donations of needed school supply items, as well as volunteer their time at the clubs.
