We have been requested by Melanie Zamichieli a 6th grade counselor for the National Junior Honor Society at Sandy Run Middle School and CJs Got Your Back, Inc. to come to Sandy Run Middle School and pick up 106 back packs for veterans. These back packs are filled with toiletries and such for veterans in need.

History/Story,
CJsGotYourBack, Inc. in conjunction with Sandy Run Middle School’s
6th grade class have put together 75-100 backpacks for veterans as a service
project for Martin Luther King Day. CJsGotYourBack and the children in the
6th grade class donated backpacks and supplies and put the bags together
during the school day. As part of the events and the day of service we
would like a veteran, or veterans to come and pick up the bags to be
donated to help give the children a deeper, more meaningful understanding
of the services our veterans have provided to us and each other.
CJsGotYourBack, Inc is a small charity started by CJ Ambrose when he
was 8 year old and learned about “welfare backpacks”. He felt that all
children in his school and other should have “cool” backpacks they are
excited to carry as to make the start of the school year or any time easier
and more exciting. With help from social media, friends and family
CjsGotYourBack has provided over 1000 backpacks to children in the
Philadelphia area. Every chance CJ has he is working on getting donations
and talking about what he can do to spread charity to others in need. CJ,
decided another good use of his backpack donation is to provide supplies
to veterans in need and came up with the idea to work with his classmates
to make this project happen. He is very excited to combine his love for
school and charity together for this project.


We already have a WWR member bringing a truck to transport the back packs we now just need some riders and an RC to take this mission home!!!! There will be a group of the children that worked on this project there to meet with us when we arrive. So let’s get out there and thank them for their dedication to help veterans and their community.

106 Backpacks collected and then dropped off. It was a pleasure to meet CJ and the rest of the children who made this possible.
