Acme Donates Hundreds of Backpacks Ahead of School Return
Acme Paper & Supply Co. the Mid-Atlantic’s leading supply and distribution company, recently donated hundreds of backpacks to Mid-Atlantic schools and organizations. The backpacks, along with the school supplies provided inside of the bags, will help over 500 students across the region.
