The Sports Shop duo of Reese and K-Mac believe in helping teachers and students succeed. Starting in 2017, they’ve hosted an annual event to support a local school in the Raleigh-Durham area with their Backpack for Teachers event.
During the event, they honor teachers by providing them with backpacks filled with classroom supplies. They solicit donations from the community before and during the Live Show event. The school with whom they partner provides a “Need List” as a guide. Volunteers then help assemble the bags to present to the teachers.
