For economically challenged families, items like pencils and paper are often forced to the bottom of the list of necessities. But that leaves more than 80,000 school-age kids in the Greater Pittsburgh Area without access to the most basic supplies—things that enable them to participate in learning activities, complete their homework and feel like valuable members of the class.
We are proud to support The Education Partnership in their fight to bridge the gap between what students have and what they need to succeed in the classroom. We believe a good education is one of the best opportunities a child has to reach his or her potential.
In 2019, we joined the Kids in Need Foundation to kick off our first year of supporting schools in Colorado by adopting Paris Elementary in Aurora, Colorado. The Kids In Need Foundation works to ensure that every child is prepared to learn and succeed in the classroom by providing free school supplies nationally to students most in need.
We believe supporting the education of our children strengthens our communities, and we are proud to continue our goal of providing supplies to local schools in need.
