Adopt-a-Classroom Program Receives Donation
For the second consecutive year, The Anderson Family Charitable Foundation proudly donated funds to the Kiawah Cares Foundation to help ensure students have school uniforms and supplies for the 2018-2019 school year. The Adopt-a-Classroom Program is an adaptation of the popular Adopt-a-Student Program and aims to meet classroom and nutritional needs at Angel Oak and Frierson elementary schools in South Carolina. Of each $200 gift, the Adopt-a-Classroom program will provide $100 for each teacher to purchase the supplies they need in the classroom. Another $100 will support the Kiawah Women's Foundation's Backpack Buddies program, which helps meet the needs for children who may otherwise lack access to adequate nutrition. In the last 2 years, the AFCF has sponsored 15 classrooms!

Event Donates $30K to local charities
The John Anderson College Avenue Mile was a huge success with proceeds from the 1-mile race benefitting the Columbia Public Schools STEM programs and The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri's Buddy Pack Program. More than 300 runners turned out to participate and enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day in Columbia, MO.

King Elementary Children's Center for Engineering
A donation of $4500 was made to King Elementary in Green Bay, WI to further STEM opportunities for elementary students in the area. Their unique educational environment provides an integrated approach to teaching. Students learn with a hands-on approach, solving real-world problems with technology as a means to learning.
"Because of your Foundation, we have been able to realize our dream, our vision for the kids" said principal Diane Stelmach.
