Rairdon Gets 1200 Backpacks, but What did They Do With Them

Back to school and giving back make the perfect pair! That’s why the Rairdon Auto Group recently gifted 1200 backpacks to local, Seattle-area kids.

When Rairdon & Hopelink Team Up, Seattle Kids Win

No student should go back to school unprepared!

This was Rairdon’s mantra as they stuffed the 1200 backpacks that had just been placed on their doorstep with school supplies.

Inside went go-to items like scissors, pens, glue, crayons, and rulers.

“Hopelink was shining like a brilliant beacon” 

With the team’s heavy lifting complete, they headed for Hopelink’s

drop-off center located in Kirkland.

*The team swears that Hopelink was shining like a brilliant beacon

as they made their approach from the street*.

With plenty of smiles, Rairdon got behind the wheel of 4 Dodge SUVs 

and a Ram ProMaster

(as they operate four Dodge-Ram dealerships, what else would you expect?!)

Their meet-up with Hopelink’s volunteers proved fruitful.

After a spirited transfer, the precious cargo was one step closer

to being in the hands of our underserved students.

Why the partnership between Hopelink and Rairdon?

Well, it’s all about taking care of home.

As both organizations strive for the betterment of their local Seattle community,

their joining forces made perfect sense.
