In the US, 92% of classrooms have students whose families cannot afford school supplies [Source]. To do a small part in responding to this alarming statistic, Luma partnered with the Kids In Need Foundation to help deliver supplies to those who need them most for the upcoming school year.
In August, Luma employees (safely) gathered in our Santa Monica studio to fill 160 backpacks with school supplies for students in South LA. While the late afternoon sun streamed in through the windows, our crew worked together to stock the backpacks with supplies such as notebooks, rulers, pencil cases, and more - while others wrote inspiring notes to stuff inside. Once all the backpacks were fully stocked and zipped closed, we popped open some wine and made our way out to the terrace for a networking session.
