DLP Aiming to Break the ™ Title GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® for Longest Line of Backpacks while Donating over 4,000 Back-to-School Backpacks to Children throughout the Lehigh Valley
DLP Realty, an affiliate of DLP Real Estate Capital, will be hosting its DLP ‘Gives Back-Packs’ Event on Saturday, August 7, 2021, at Coca-Cola Stadium, home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. DLP will partner with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs and additional local businesses for an exciting day of breaking a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title and most importantly, providing back-to-school backpacks for children throughout the Lehigh Valley.
The fun will begin at 2 p.m. in the parking lot of the stadium as we set out to break the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for longest line of backpacks. The previous record of 3,318 backpacks was attained in September 2015 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. DLP wants to set a new record, aiming at a goal of 4,400 backpacks! Each and every backpack will be donated to children throughout the Lehigh Valley.
Stewardship, one of DLP’s 10 Core Values, is vital to the company’s mission and embodies the importance of giving back to the community in a tangible and important way. Founder and CEO Don Wenner says, “As many children and their families are looking forward to heading back to school post-Covid, we want to help and provide school supplies and backpacks to support their needs. The ability to break a world record is just icing on the cake.“
Jonathan Campbell, DLP Realty VP, says, “We can’t wait to attempt to break a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title, all for a great cause to help kids throughout the Lehigh Valley. We are providing a fun-filled family event for the entire community including food trucks, kids’ activities, photos with the IronPigs mascot, and additional entertainment.”
