Every year, Hot Topic HQ partners with the New Horizons organization to hold a back-to-school Backpack Drive in support of local Title I schools. With the help of our generous vendors, Hot Topic collects hundreds of backpacks to give to children in need. Each department pledges a number of backpacks and stuffs them with all the school supplies an elementary student could need: from crayons and glue sticks to composition books and pens.
This year, we shattered the records of previous years and donated over 500 backpacks that went to seven elementary schools. We are proud to be able to contribute to our community each year and support the amazing work that New Horizons does for our local schools!
