Collecting backpacks, school supplies for CROSS

CROSSwurthAdamsTo help local families prepare for the upcoming school year, Wurth Adams employees collected and donated 81 pounds of new backpacks and school supplies to CROSS Services. Employees at the Maple Grove business, such as (left to right) Jessica Wahlberg, Bri Kern and Becca Reitan-Humayun, have been collecting and donating new backpacks and school supplies to CROSS for more than five years. CROSS Services is a non-profit organization serving families and individuals living in Rogers, Maple Grove, Osseo, Champlin (west), Corcoran and Dayton. CROSS thanks the many businesses, religious organizations, individuals and organizations for the new donated backpacks and schools supplies. Around 800 local children will receive back to school assistance before the beginning of the new school year. For more information about CROSS Services, visit or call 763-425-1050.
