Service Day: Intern Week (East) – Backpack Stuffing

Rosendin Interns participated in a Service Day during the East Intern Week by stuffing backpacks for Second Story.
The Rosendin Foundation

Rosendin Interns gathered together to learn about Rosendin, its impact and how it builds. Rosendin invited Jolsna Thomas to present about The Rosendin Foundation, and after lunch, interns packed backpacks for in-need children to give to Second Story.

In this gamified Service Day, interns were tasked with building back-to-school packs containing snacks, school supplies, toys, and hygiene products.

To start, the interns did a small ice breaker, organized into teams of 3, then played Jeopardy (Rosendin Edition) to decide rankings. The team with the highest score chose first then down the rankings until all the questions were done.

Afterward, they worked as a team to barter and trade their items with other groups to complete the backpacks. Teams were allowed extra time in the beginning based on how they did in Jeopardy.

The interns had a blast making an impact by packing backpacks and learning the importance of corporate philanthropy as they transition into their careers after college.

Second Story will distribute the backpacks to children who need these materials to support their education.
