ITS President JT Spangler delivered the $10,000 check Dec. 21, 2009; just in time for Christmas. Accompanying Mr. Spangler and the check were hats for the children at the center. ITSENCLOSURES also gave the center computer equipment that was delivered earlier in the month.
"Giving back to the community is important to us," Mr. Spangler said. "Knowing that we're making a difference and helping local children and families is a truly rewarding experience. We're excited to continue our partnership for years to come."
This is the second consecutive year ITSENCLOSURES has made a significant contribution to the 4 Kids Early Learning Center. The company donated $20,000 last year and plans on continuing this new traditional in the following years.
This year's and last year's donations were made in the name of the late ITSENCLOSURES employee Robert Snyder. Mr. Spangler and ITSENCLOSURES learned of the organization through Linda Snyder, a longtime friend of the Spangler family and Mr. Snyder's widow.
Michele R. Atkins, interim president and CEO of the Heritage Community Initiatives, Inc., said the donation and others like it "will go a long way in helping develop future generations of participating, self-reliant citizens. Without these donations, these children would have a much more difficult journey."
