Lake Success, N.Y. (Sept. 24, 2012) – The Garden City Group, Inc. (GCG), one of the largest claims administration firms in the country, partnered with The United Way of Long Island and their 4th Annual Stuff-A-Bus Campaign to help local students from low-income families head back to school prepared, with new backpacks and other essential school supplies.

From pens and pencils to notebooks and lunchboxes, GCG’s Lake Success, N.Y. office gathered more than 70 backpacks filled with school supplies this summer to contribute to students in the local community.

According to its website, The United Way of Long Island’s Stuff-A-Bus-Campaign provides children from low income families with new school supplies to help prepare them for the academic year and build their self-esteem.

“Partnering with The United Way in this campaign has allowed us to help local children start their school year off right,” said David Isaac, chief executive officer of GCG. “GCG prides itself in contributing positively to our local communities, and we are happy to have been a part of this effort.”

“For many children, these new school supplies make a huge difference in starting their academic school year and boosting their confidence,” said Jennifer Pristera, vice president, human resources. “It was a pleasure being a part of this worthwhile cause and coordinating GCG’s efforts for this campaign.”
