The staff at Copart Sacramento volunteered at the Jessie Baker Games at the Jessie Baker School, a school for children with special needs, on April 27. The annual Jessie Baker Games not only encourages students to maintain healthy lifestyles but also recognizes their accomplishments.

Athletes from the school trained for six weeks in preparation for the games. Copart employees volunteered at the games to celebrate the athletes and their accomplishments. The team spent the day supporting the athletes and cheered them to the finish line. Team members also hosted a raffle for a VIP tent to raise money for the Jessie Baker School. The winner of the raffle enjoyed VIP access to the games and covered seating provided by Copart Sacramento.
The Jessie Baker School was founded in 1962 and is one of the very first schools in California dedicated to students with special needs.
