Chad Collett, Director of Marketing at Ledgeview Partners, reflects upon the program’s continuous success in its third year.
“Entering into our third year of participation in the Backpacks for Kids school supply drive, it is exciting to see the overwhelming generosity that our employees display every year,” Collet says. “A good education is paramount to a child’s success, and we want to do our share in our community to provide them with the supplies they need to accomplish that.”
According to Outagamie County, the program has provided “students in need in grades K-12 with a backpack and basic supplies for that very important first day of school since 1990.”
In 2017, the county reports that they provided 860 children with a new backpack filled with the supplies they needed to succeed during the school year.
The program is volunteer-driven. Organizations throughout the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin within different industries give back, and, this year, Ledgeview Partners is inviting community members to contribute to their own internal efforts to support the program.
Fox Valley, WI area community members are invited to donate to Ledgeview Partners’ efforts from July 16, to Aug. 2. Stop by the Ledgeview Partners offices during the collection period, Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to donate.
Ledgeview Partners will drop off supplies to Outagamie County on Friday, Aug. 3. Donate your supplies to Ledgeview’s headquarters during the collection period. Ledgeview Partners is located at:
14 Tri-Park Way Appleton, WI 54914
This is truly a fun and easy way for Ledgeview Partners employees and the outstanding community that lives in the Fox Valley area of Wisconsin to give back, help out, and give children in the area hope for an outstanding school year!
When kids have the supplies they need to get them through the year, they tend to make better connections with their peers, become more motivated, and enjoy their day-to-day more and more.
As Outagamie County says, “A new backpack can put the biggest smile on a child’s face!”
