Runnings begins backpack campaign

MARSHALL -- Runnings has launched a campaign to donate new backpacks filled with supplies to local schools.

As part of the company-wide initiative, Runnings will place new Wrangler backpacks filled with back to school basics in the hands of children who may not otherwise have the proper tools for success.

"Here in rural America, people really like to help each other," said Dan Herrmann, Runnings COO. "Our employees and our friends at Wrangler were really excited to be involved with this campaign because it helps young people in need as they prepare to go back to school."

The company will donate over $10,000 in backpacks and supplies to schools located near their retail stores across the upper Midwest.
