Watercrest Lake Nona to Host ‘We Got Your Back’ Backpack Stuffing Event to Benefit Homeless Youth

VERO  BEACH, FL–Volunteers in the Orlando area are invited to Watercrest Lake Nona Assisted Living and Memory Care to assist at a backpack stuffing event to benefit homeless youth.  On November 30 at 2 p.m, Watercrest Lake Nona associates, residents and community volunteers will pack backpacks full of necessities to provide to homeless youth in the local community.

The backpack stuffing events are part of The Danna Foundation’s, ‘We Got Your Back’ initiative, inspiring homeless youth to seek help from Volunteers of America or Covenant House to improve their lives.

The backpack drive provides homeless youth with new, sturdy, high-quality backpacks which keep their belongings safe and that are stocked with vital items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, socks and deodorant.

The Danna Foundation and ‘We Got Your Back’ are sponsored by Bridge Investment Group, owners of Watercrest Lake Nona, and one of the nation’s leading real estate investment companies.  Bridge Investment Group is committed to their people, striving to create communities where people are excited to live and work, and investing dollars and time to support the livelihoods of those in their broader communities.

Watercrest Lake Nona Assisted Living and Memory Care is located at 9682 Lake Nona Village Place, Orlando. Refreshments will be served, and all backpacks and supplies will be provided by Bridge Investment Group at the event location.
