Elevation Burger has partnered with Chapman Partnership (formerly Community Partnership for the Homeless) which provides comprehensive services to empower the homeless, to collect school back packs for the 1,000-pls children that pass through the doors of Chapman Partnership each school year.
The backpack drive kicks off June 1with Elevation Burger Dadeland and Miami Lakes locations serving as the official drop-off sites for the countywide effort. The goal is to collect 1000 backpacks by end of June.
Contributed backpacks should be gently used or new with school supplies also welcome. Each year over 1,000 children pass through the doors of Chapman’s two Miami-Dade facilities, aiding families who are unable to afford uniforms, school supplies and/or a backpack.
“We really liked the fact that Elevation Burger is committed to environmentally sustainable practices and to being part of the community it serves,” said Patricia Vila Marketing Director for Chapman Partnership.
“Chapman Partnership provides such a valuable service, way beyond the traditional soup-kitchen model, and we are excited to help them this year,” said Magali Vannier, Elevation Burger Owner and Franchisee.
Elevation Burger, a national organic burger chain that serves 100% USDA-certified organic, 100% grass-fed, beef burgers, opened in Falls Church, VA in 2005. Chapman Partnership, private sector partner of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust, has been commissioned to site, build and operate two Homeless Assistance Centers in downtown Miami and Homestead.
