This is the 25th year of Henry Schein’s Back to School programme, which provides backpacks, school supplies, and more to support the needs of underserved children and their families. According to the company, this year its staff at 34 locations worldwide donated backpacks filled with school supplies to more than 5,000 children. In Ireland, Henry Schein co-operated with Barnardos as part of the programme. Suzanne Connolly, Barnardos CEO, said: “By collaborating with Henry Schein to support the back-to-school needs of vulnerable children, we can help them achieve great things, because childhood lasts a lifetime”.
Paddy Bolger, Managing Director of Henry Schein Ireland, said: “At Henry Schein, our culture is built on the belief that every person is as important as the next, and the Back to School programme exemplifies our commitment to volunteering and community outreach”.
