AZ partners with Children and Families First of Delaware

AstraZeneca employees fill backpacks for Warner Elementary.

AstraZeneca employees spent the morning packing school bags with Children and Families First of Delaware for Warner Elementary School in Wilmington, Delaware. Children and Families First of Delaware has recently been named one of the Young Health Program Community Mobilizer Organizations, responsible for advancing the implementation of the YHP program in a specific geographical area of Delaware.

Volunteers filled approximately 50 backpacks with various school supplies gathered from donations by AstraZeneca employees. The backpacks will be given to children in grades K-5 and the leftover supplies will be distributed to teachers for use in various classrooms.

“AstraZeneca continues to support the efforts of Delaware Valley nonprofit organizations working to improve health in communities across the U.S.,” said Roianne Ross, Director, External Affairs. “Our contributions work to connect people and communities with resources that improve their health and well-being.”

AstraZeneca recognizes the importance of contributing to nonprofit organizations to help meet the growing challenges they face each and every day. For more information on the communities AZ supports, visit our Responsibility page on
