Versique’s Annual Simon Says Give Volunteer Event Breaks Guinness World Record
Versique has been a part of the Simon Says Give Event for several years now. Our staff had the opportunity to help organize supplies the day before the backpack stuffing and donate supplies to help fill on the day of the event.
This year, Simon Says Give set a new Guinness World Record for Stuffing 8,148 backpacks in an 8-hour period-of-time. We could not be more thrilled with the results and are looking forward to volunteering for the next Simon Says Give event.
