As summer winds down and many parents and children prepare for the upcoming school year, more than 15 million students in the U.S. will walk into their classrooms without much-needed supplies such as pens, pencils and bookbags. Fortunately, organizations such as American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation and Spirit of Giving Network take the initiative to give back to their community and help their local youth.
On January 8, 2019, American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation hosted a Clean the World Hygiene Kit Building Event. With the mission to inspire, protect, and restore dreams, American Family Insurance employees and volunteers came together to build 2,100 hygiene kits and present the them to the Spirit of Giving Network, a collaborative non-profit organization with a focus on children and families.
The kits were portioned out to two groups in need. While 200 of the kits went to homeless, female veterans, the Spirit of Giving Network provided the remaining 1,900 kits to children of low-income families in Boca Raton on July 27, 2019, along with much-needed school supplies at their Back to School event.
“At our Back to School event, each child was paired with a personal shopper where they were able to pick out a backpack and appropriate school supplies, [received] new shoes, 2 pairs of socks, and the topping on the cake was receiving their [Clean the World Hygiene Kits]. The smiles were [heartwarming].” – Lindy Harvey
Thank you, American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation and all involved, for taking the time to assemble kits for those in need. Because of your selflessness, thousands of children have access to hygiene resources to complement their much-needed school supplies for the year.
