Best Ed was able to partner with these companies and the MPS Foundation to do a virtual “No Empty Back Packs” project to provide over 1100 backpacks with schools supplies to MPS Schools. Previously the drive was in-person with drop off donations. Our collaboration allowed the project to continue to safely meet post-covid the needs of MPS students.
