On Friday, Aug. 10, Voit Real Estate Services provided over 50 backpacks and supplies for kindergarten to high school-aged youth at the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s La Colonia Clubhouse in Solana Beach. Employees donated money and time to piece together backpacks and enjoyed a game of dodgeball against La Colonia Clubhouse members. Sony Electronics and Sony Interactive Entertainment hosted their annual Back to School drive.

During the weeklong campaign, employees placed school supplies in Stuff the Bus bins at their San Diego headquarters. They donated five boxes of school supplies, including backpacks, markers, crayons, paper, highlighters, pens, pencils, and more to distribute at the Griset Clubhouse in Encinitas. Thanks to Voit and Sony employees, Boys & Girls Clubs members have the right tools to face the challenges of a new school year.
