If you feel like the unexpected just keeps happening, you’re not alone! In this episode, Katie talks to Courtney Brockmeyer, the founder of the Sydney Paige Foundation. The Sydney Paige Foundation provides backpacks and school supplies to children of families that couldn’t otherwise afford them. With a focus on quality products that built students’ confidence and upheld their dignity, the Foundation was soaring…And then the pandemic hit. Courtney shares how her organization pivoted and how we can all be better prepared for the next once-in-a-lifetime situation.
