The Culver Studios Helps for the Holidays
The Culver Studios donates $3,600 to Backpacks covering our expenses for the rest of the year!
At a recent neighborhood holiday event, Michael Hackman, The Culver Studios owner, gave Backpacks this generous donation instead of handing out swag bags and party favors to the 200 Culver City family members who attended.
Thank you The Culver Studios for being an active community participant!
