Premier Nationwide Lending Joins Hands with CBS Eco Media to Support Blessings in a Backpack

03/25/2014

Flower Mound, Texas – Premier Nationwide Lending (PNL) is proud of and excited about its partnership with CBS EcoMedia in support of the Blessings in a Backpack program. The mission of Blessings in a Backpack is to provide nutritional food for elementary children across America who may otherwise have little or no food to eat on weekends during the school year. Sadly, there are 20 million kids in America who are at risk of hunger. PNL’s support is helping solve a major issue in our country.

Specifically, PNL is working with Uplift Peak Preparatory , a K-12 campus located in East Dallas near Baylor Hospital. Students in this school often come from challenging backgrounds so the ability to have meals through the weekend really sets up the students for success. “They are able to not worry about not having food over the weekend or going hungry and not being the first thing on their minds on Monday morning. They are able to come to school really ready and prepared to learn,” said Sara Ortego of Uplift Peak Preparatory.

A team of PNL employees met at the school to do a “stuffing” of the backpacks on December 10, 2013. They included food that was easy to heat and eat like mac and cheese and other nonperishable items like fruit snack packs and crackers. There are 50 students participating for the school year of 38 weeks for a total of 1900 backpacks going out in just one year with a 3 year commitment of 5700 backpacks.

“At PNL, we are about family”, stated Brian Phillips of PNL, who is actively involved with the program. “So this really does fit our business model. The fact that we are feeding 50 kids for the next 3 years is remarkable.”

Deanna Adams, also from PNL , shared how she saw kids in the hallway of the school putting on the backpacks. “It was just incredible. They were smiling and giving me the ‘thumbs up’ sign. It was great!”

“PNL with it’s great team of employees and level of community commitment has the ability to give back and to share with others, to help others to live a better life, “ said PNL’s Sean Briggs, father of three. “I can certainly relate to how important it is for kids to be well nourished so they are ready to learn.”

At CBS EcoMedia Inc., their vision is to harness the power of advertising and channel it into tangible social change. They create a relationship between a CBS platform, such as CBS radio in Dallas, a corporate sponsor like PNL and a not-for-profit organization such as Blessings in a Backpack to bring everyone together for a common cause.
