Spreading Happiness Back to School – Atkinson Candy Co.

0 comments / Posted by Sarah Atkinson

It's that time of year! Back to school kiddos. A new school year brings a wealth of possibilities for young minds. What is your favorite memory of starting off a new school year? For me it was getting a brand new box of fresh crayons. There was something so exciting about the possibilities that a new school year and a new box of crayons would bring. 

Supplies like backpacks, notebook paper, pens, pencils and crayons seem like simple necessities, but to a kid that doesn't have them it is a disadvantage from the start. 

In the spirit of spreading happiness and the start of a new school year, we will be donating 100% of our website proceeds on Friday August 17th to Operation Homefront's Back To School Brigade. Their annual nationwide school supply collection campaign distributes around 40,000 supply-filled backpacks to military kids across the country.
