PHILANTHROPY

Staking Kids with Back-to-School Supplies

Preparing for the recent start of school, International Cruise & Excursions, Inc. held its annual Fill-A-Backpack Drive to raise funds and donate school supplies to its local nonprofit community partner, A New Leaf. The internal ICE Charity Committee raised more than $11,000 from employees at the ICE Headquarters in Scottsdale, helping to fill more than 800 backpacks with basic school supplies. This year’s donation also included $2,000 in gift cards for new shoes — which ICE has been doing since learning, in 2016, that many of the children utilizing A New Leaf’s services had to use duct tape to seal holes in their shoes — as well as an additional $3,000 to further support A New Leaf’s charitable initiatives.
