During the summer months, OnTrac employees donated school supplies and packed backpacks for students throughout school districts in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Washington. 1,000 backpacks were delivered in total to 34 school districts and charities, and several “get to know you” postcards were sent back to OnTrac filled out by the students who received them. The school districts who received these backpacks were chosen based on their proximity to the local OnTrac facility within their city.

OnTrac Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations Laura Peterson says, “Helping others is an important company-wide initiative that brings OnTrac together as Team Delivering Hope. Corporate philanthropy allows OnTrac to connect with the community and with each other. We feel extremely fortunate as a company to be able to donate over $30,000 year-to-date through various give-back programs.”
