Thanks to the kindness of people living across the Tampa Bay area, the collection grows each year.
This year Rob wants to collect 547 backpacks, plus other school supplies, and make deliveries to every single elementary school in Pinellas County.
At a recent event at the Dunedin Marina, his wife’s run club donated 140 backpacks. At one point, the crowd filled the streets. The feel-good moment all thanks to a woman who was “rough around the edges.”
With a few weeks left before school starts, Rob is confident he can reach that goal.
