2012 marks the second year that SolarGlass Window & Door has supported Janus’ Community School Supply Drive. We are very proud to help children who may otherwise not have the tools to be productive in their studies. Supporting our local communities is one of the fun parts of what we do as a company to help out others in need, and it is completely satisfying to know when our efforts are recognized!
What makes this benefit satisfying is the great hand made thank you card that the kids who directly benefited from our school supply collection presented us to show their appreciation. This thank you card is a very powerful reminder that supporting our local communities is an important endeavor, and we look forward to supporting DPS again in 2013!
Below is the note from Janus’ event coordinator, and the wonderful hand made thank you from the kids.
“Hello! – Today we stopped by and dropped off all the lovely thank you cards from each school we donated to. I cannot reiterate how appreciative and happy the kids, parents and teachers were for every donation made. This gratitude definitely shows in each card/poster they wrote.
As promised here are a few numbers to note from the drive …
We collected over 700 notebooks, over 40 backpacks, and over 3000 pens! At the end of the day we collected over 50 medium to large boxes FULL of supplies. The supplies were distributed throughout 8 DPS schools, which is over 60 classrooms and over 1500 students. Grant, Ellis, Cole, Sabin, MLK and Gust are a few of the schools we have impacted.
I personally want to thank you again for your support! I will be in touch moving forward into 2013, assuming you would like to participate next year.”
