Last month, we announced a partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation (KINF), a non-profit who provides free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers. For every order placed at Business Supply, we pledged to donate one item to KINF. Today, our first donation will be delivered Classroom Central in Charlotte, NC, who is part of the KINF National Network of Resource Centers.
The January tally: 33,000 pencils. To get a different perspective on the donation, check out this infographic we created:
Pretty cool, huh?
We’re extremely excited about how our customers and employees have embraced this partnership. The results for the first month were spectacular, but we can’t stop there. The more we share this story, the more children we can eventually help. There are millions of children who go to school without the core school supplies they need to succeed. So if you can share this post, please do. The social buttons are below.
We’ll have an update on Friday with pictures, quotes, and (hopefully) video of the delivery.
