Brian White | August 15, 2022 | Events
Attorney Brian White Personal Injury Lawyers hosted the Back-Pack to School Charity Event on Saturday, August 6, 2022. We are pleased to announce that the event was a huge success!
All in all, our firm provided over 500 quality backpacks full of grade-specific supplies and hygiene necessities, one for every student at the school.
The back-to-school event featured a successful food and clothes drive Attorney Brian White Personal Injury Lawyers also established a GoFundMe account and raised an additional $2,000 to donate to Ketelson.
The event also had its fair share of fun and games to welcome the students back to school! Our firm provided a bounce house, music, face painting, and, of course, Texas barbeque for the enjoyment of all who attended. We want to give a shout-out to our staff members, who volunteered their time on a Saturday to deliver the backpacks and assist with the back-to-school event.

Why “Back-pack to School”?
Brian was on a recent work trip when he learned of “The Backpack Project,” an incredible non-profit organization that has donated over 250,000 backpacks to deserving elementary schools in the past five years.
The Backpack Project resonated with Brian, who grew up in a low-income household where he and his family struggled with basic needs, especially things like school supplies. Moreover, many of Attorney Brian White Personal Injury Lawyers’ clients come from similar socioeconomic backgrounds. Accordingly, Brian felt his firm should step up and support a local elementary.
Why Ketelsen Elementary School in Houston, TX?
Brian and firm staff met with a number of deserving elementary schools in the Houston area. However, the team fell in love with the students and staff at Ketelsen Elementary School. It was apparent that the school had tremendous teachers and staff members but lacked key resources. A Wraparound staff member who works with the school even told us that students often ask him for extra food to take home because school lunch is their only meal.
The Ketelson community was incredibly gracious during the entire back-pack to school event, and the unconditional support the teachers and administrators have for the students was on full display. We were continually reminded of why we chose Ketelson throughout the event.
Good Luck This School Year, Ketelson!
Attorney Brian White Personal Injury Lawyers is so proud to be a part of the Houston Community. We strive to make it better every day, whether through events like the Back-Pack to School Project or through helping Houston accident victims recover the money they need to get back on their feet after an injury.
We are thrilled to be able to support such a highly-deserving school and its bright young students. We wish the Ketelson community the best of luck during the 2022-2023 school year. Go Kangaroos!
