Earlier this month, staff at Addison, Texas-based SAGE (PPAI 100001) donated school supplies including pens, notebooks, backpacks and more to Metrocrest Service’s back to school drive. A team of SAGE employees also volunteered at Metrocrest’s warehouse for an afternoon, where they stuffed boxes with school supplies and helped sort out the donated items.

With more than 65 percent of students in Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD in free and reduced meal programs, many parents can't provide the basic school supplies their children need for the school year. The supplies will be given to 2,000 students, providing them with tools to succeed in the classroom.

Metrocrest Services assists individuals living in Carrollton, Addison, Farmers Branch, Coppell and the city of Dallas (75287) in Denton County who are coping with crisis situations, need help stabilizing their lives, or who require support to live independently.
