Back Pack to Basics – Backpack & School Supply Donation Program in support of the Burlington Food Bank From Aug 13-20, the folks at MWR asked the community to join in and put a smile on a child’s face on their first day back to school. Backpacks were filled with essential items to give that child the opportunity to be the best they can be. The program was founded by Ryan & Melissa Zogala of the MWR Realty team. The folks at MWR donated BackPacks to the Food Bank as a back to school gesture for Burlington Food Bank clients

Shown here are Ryan Zogala and Melissa Zogala (MWR | Married with Real Estate Realty Team) and Richard Weima broker (Right at home realty, Burlington).
