Adopt-a-Student Program Receives Donation
Poor fitting or improper clothing often creates a distracting environment for young learners, making it hard to keep their focus on schoolwork. The Anderson Family Charitable Foundation proudly donated $2,000 to Kiawah Cares Foundation to help ensure students at Angel Oak and E.L. Frierson Elementary schools in South Carolina have school uniforms and supplies. In addition, the donation will also support the Kiawah Women's Foundation's partner program, Backpack Buddies. The gift will be directed equally to uniform purchases and to backpack buddies, which helps meet the nutritional needs for children who may otherwise lack access to adequate nutrition.
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.
Take a look at how the Foundation funding is impacting the Maker Space at King Elementary.
