“I​ ​am​ ​very​ ​proud​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Philadelphia​ ​Young​ ​Republicans​ ​who​ ​supported​ ​this​ ​project”​ ​said​ ​Ross​ ​Wolfe, Chairman​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Philadelphia​ ​Young​ ​Republicans.​ ​“The​ ​political​ ​climate​ ​in​ ​the​ ​country​ ​right​ ​now​ ​is​ ​such that​ ​people​ ​forget​ ​that​ ​politics​ ​should​ ​start​ ​and​ ​stop​ ​with​ ​helping​ ​the​ ​community.​ ​With​ ​this​ ​project,​ ​the Philly​ ​YRs​ ​are​ ​able​ ​to​ ​directly​ ​assist​ ​those​ ​in​ ​our​ ​community​ ​who​ ​need​ ​the​ ​most​ ​help.”
The​ ​backpacks​ ​and​ ​supplies​ ​were​ ​purchased​ ​after​ ​a​ ​successful​ ​fundraising​ ​campaign​ ​that​ ​was​ ​launched​ ​in mid-August​ ​with​ ​a​ ​goal​ ​of​ ​providing​ ​35​ ​children​ ​with​ ​backpacks.​ ​After​ ​just​ ​9​ ​days​ ​of​ ​online​ ​and​ ​offline fundraising,​ ​enough​ ​money​ ​was​ ​raised​ ​from​ ​Philadelphia​ ​and​ ​PA​ ​donors​ ​to​ ​purchase​ ​330​ ​backpacks​ ​with supplies.
“We​ ​are​ ​very​ ​thankful​ ​to​ ​be​ ​in​ ​a​ ​position​ ​to​ ​hand​ ​out​ ​330​ ​backpacks​ ​just​ ​in​ ​time​ ​for​ ​the​ ​17-18​ ​school​ ​year. As​ ​Ross​ ​stated,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​very​ ​proud​ ​to​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​directly​ ​assist​ ​those​ ​in​ ​our​ ​community​ ​who​ ​need​ ​help” said​ ​Bryan​ ​Leib,​ ​Treasurer​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Philadelphia​ ​Young​ ​Republicans,​ ​who​ ​spearheaded​ ​the​ ​project.​ ​”I​ ​want to​ ​give​ ​a​ ​special​ ​thank​ ​you​ ​to​ ​our​ ​donors​ ​who​ ​stepped​ ​up​ ​to​ ​support​ ​the​ ​PYRs​ ​and​ ​330​ ​elementary students!”
