NJC Printing wanted to take some time to learn a little more about our customers and share with you more about the services and opportunities these awesome businesses and non-profit organizations provide.
This month, we asked Christy McCutcheon, Director of Operations, KidSmart Tools for Learning to answer a few questions about this organization that helps empower children in need to succeed in school by providing the essential tools for learning.
What is the mission of KidSmart?
Our mission is to ensure that children and their classrooms in the Greater Metropolitan Saint Louis Area have the basic tools for learning by transferring, at no cost, the community’s surplus supplies and merchandise into the hands of teachers for school children in need.
How do you accomplish this mission?
Donations from individuals and businesses help keep the shelves of KidSmart’s Free Store stocked with everything from crayons, markers and glue to business surplus items such as binders, envelopes and promotional items.
KidSmart distributes the supplies through teachers who shop at KidSmart’s Free Store once a month. After shopping, teachers distribute the materials directly into the hands of our kids in need.
How can communities help KidSmart?
KidSmart relies on the generosity of the community to provide local kids in need with the tools they need to succeed in school. Your donation will have a positive impact on the education of thousands of local students in need. To make a donation click on http://www.kidsmartstl.org/donate/.
Volunteers – The KidSmart Free Store is run entirely with volunteer help from dedicated community members just like you. There are a number of opportunities for individuals or groups to get involved, whether it is an ongoing commitment or a one-time project.
