Project Backpack

Since moving to Cincinnati, Mat and I have been looking for ways to get involved in the community. We considered doing some sort of school supply drive but to our luck and with the help of the Reds, we found that one already takes place annually! Project Backpack is an event put on by FOX19 WXIX-TV along with partner Kiss 107. To date, more than 8,500 Cincinnati-area children have received school supplies and backpacks through the efforts of Project Backpack and the community. How awesome is that?!

On Friday, August 2nd, Mat and I will be stopping by the Project Backpack event presented at Rookwood Commons to drop off some donations and say hi!

The event is from 6 am to 11 am and we would like to encourage you to swing by and make a donation. If you’re into the whole meet and greet thing, you can catch us from 10-11.

For a list of school supplies needed and other ways to donate, check here!

See you tomorrow?

Hope so.

you and Matt are top rate members of the cincinnati community. we will support you strongly not only as part of the reds family, but more significantly, because you are one of us.

Man, if I wasn’t already going to GABP for my son’s Reds Camp tour, I would stop by! I will have to drop off a donation at another time though! What a great project!

I wanted to say thank you. I attended my buddys benefit concert a couple of months ago, and they were raffling of course reds goodies, I saw that your hubby gave an autographed photo, and it was getting huge bids of course. Thanks to such great acts even so small as a signature, he found 2 bone marrow matches that night and every cent went to him for treatment. I believe good things like that have to be told, that’s breaking news. Welcome to cincinnati, and thanks for having us lol!

Hi Dallas. If you’re looking to get involved somewhere, head on down to City Gospel Mission. We are always in need of some good-hearted folks to lend some encouraging words to those we serve, whether to our homeless guests who eat and sleep at the Mission, the hundreds of unemployed we train and place in jobs, the dozens of men and women in our recovery programs or the 12,000 at-risk youth we serve through tutoring and mentoring, sports and the arts. – Tim Curtis, Communications Director, City Gospel Mission, tcurtis@citygospelmission.org, @CGMCincinnati.

Dallas, I hope you and Mat are doing well after your attack at PNC Park. I dont know if you’ll be able to put anything on your blog being a pending case and only found it as a result of that horrible assault on you. I have been reading the nasty comments Pirates fans have been verbally attacking you with as if your physical assault isn’t bad enough. They should hang their heads for being such low life’s. Rest and recover well knowing you have those that have your back and count my wife, son and me on your list to stand next to you. All baseball fans should be with you to prevent thugs like that from turning ballparks into places we wouldn’t want to take our family and friends to.

Great to read you’ll be supporting children with Project Backpack! Any group that helps lift children in any way is one that is felt deep in ones heart.

Get well, fight well on your assault case, enjoy Mat’s offseason and we’ll all look forward to next season!
