This summer Miniat partnered with South Holland School District 151 to raise supplies for the launch of the Balanced School Year calendar. As an incentive, each student who was registered for school before May 31, received a free backpack full of school supplies donated by businesses in the community. As a result of this initiative, 693 students received a book bag, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, spirals, notebook paper, folders, glue, binders, scissors and more!
“As an organization, we strive to be a good corporate citizen and find ways to contribute to the community that we operate within. This particular opportunity not only contributes to the community, but supports children and education, which are a primary focus when we choose to become involved with organizations from a philanthropic perspective,” says Shawna Lecuyer, Sr. Vice President of Legal and HR.
