Students at Spring Education Group schools across the country were busy helping others this summer, as they took part in Kids Helping Communities initiatives to provide support and spread kindness to those in need. Kids Helping Communities initiatives included donation drives to collect food, clothing, school supplies, pet items, diapers and other essential items, fundraisers to help fight childhood hunger and life-threatening illnesses, handmade card projects for first responders and pediatric patients, and more.
Highlights of the summer initiatives included:
- $13,000 raised for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation through lemonade and cookie sales to support the organization’s mission of impactful research, raising awareness and supporting families to help cure pediatric cancer. More than $3,000 donated to organizations providing support to children and families affected by the conflict in Ukraine.
- Fundraisers resulting in nearly $5,000 for organizations supporting families of children fighting cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
- $1,000 and thousands of school supplies items donated to organizations helping prepare children in need for the upcoming school year.
- More than 2,300 essential and childcare items, including hygiene and wellness products, stuffed animals, diapers, wipes and more, collected for nonprofits supporting children in need.
- 1,000 nonperishable food items collected to help stock the shelves of community food banks and provide meals to local families in need.
The goal of the Kids Helping Communities campaign is to teach students the importance of helping others within their communities and beyond. At Spring Education Group, we empower our students to make a difference in the world and encourage them to continue helping others — inside and outside of the classroom.
