MOORESVILLE, NC — Racing legend and NBC Sports motorsports analyst Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his wife Amy partnered with Vera Bradley and Blessings in a Backpack to host a back-to-school charity carnival event at Shepherd Elementary Monday afternoon.

The Earnhardts joined the partnering brands in the nationwide distribution as Vera Bradley will donate 50,000 backpacks to disadvantaged students as they begin the school year.

At Monday’s backpack event, 515 students were given Vera Bradley school bags with Blessings in a Backpack weekend food kits and enjoyed a carnival of back-to-school festivities with Dale and Amy.

Over the last month, Vera Bradley and Blessings in a Backpack have worked together to mobilize communities, individuals, and resources to provide new backpacks and weekend food kits for children.

In addition to backpack distribution, Vera Bradley launched a fundraising campaign in stores and at VeraBradley.com to support Blessings in a Backpack in providing children with nutritional food throughout the school year, matching funds raised up to $50,000.
