AT&T* Michigan Pioneers on Monday will present 40 backpacks filled with school supplies to school administrators from Ingham County Intermediate School District. The teachers and educators present will deliver the backpacks to students in need enrolled in various Ingham Intermediate School District special education programs including the Heartwood School, the Evergreen Program and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) classrooms  

The packs will include folders, paper, pencils and other essential school supplies. AT&T Pioneers plan to distribute more than 1,500 backpacks across Michigan this fall.

“AT&T Michigan Pioneers are active company employees and retirees who volunteer their personal time to enhance the communities where they work and live,” said David Lewis, president of AT&T Michigan. “And year in year out, they do an amazing job of leading this ‘Tools for Learning’ campaign by raising money and buying supplies to support thousands of students heading back to school through the state.”
