First Annual School Supply Drive
During July and August, we held our very own school supply drive. In the past years, we have partnered with the NCA in their back to school drives. However, this year we wanted to choose a school in our community that we could support. We searched for schools that were close to our office and decided to donate to Myrtle Tate Elementary school. Tate ES is located in a low-income neighborhood where many families find that buying school supplies can be financially burdensome. For this reason, Tate ES covers 100% of their school supplies with money from their tight budget.
Our goal was to raise $300 worth of school supplies. If our employees met this goal, Civil Werx would donate another $300. This year, with the help of our employees and their families, we were able to donate $725.87 in school supplies! We would like to thank the following individuals for their contribution:
Cindy A, Travis S, Brandon V, Julia G, Todd W, Zach Z,
Katie S, John C, Deedi M, Nea G, Gabriel V, and Horizon Specialty Hospital,
When we dropped off the school supplies, we were greeted by a kind office staff, some wonderful fifth graders, and their great principal, Sarah Popek. We received a tour of the school by Mrs. Popek and learned all about what makes the Tate Tigers so outstanding. We are excited to announce that we will continue working with this wonderful school throughout the school year in efforts to bring the construction and educational fields together. Keep your eye out for upcoming events. Go Tigers!
