The Friends corporate headquarters team of Findlay, Ohio learned of the losses incurred by Elgin West Elementary School of Elgin Local Schools after many of their schools flooded or incurred water damage in February and early March. Friends decided to aid the school system by sending supplies for their elementary school’s administrators, teachers and students.
“Much of our own team has endured losses after our own properties flooded in 2007, 2009 and again this past February,” explains Dawn Baldridge, Account Manager for Friends in Findlay, Ohio. “Friends serves many school districts throughout Ohio, so when we heard of a local school system in need of supplies we were glad to offer our help.”
Dawn delivered over 600 units of supplies to Elgin Local School District’s District Office this week. Included in the supplies were Universal pens, Pilot pens, Bic permanent markers, Pilot dry erase markers, Bic dry erase markers, Smead two-pocket and file folders, Oxford folders, Pacon Arts and Crafts paper samples, Bostitch mini staplers, Prang crayon sample packs, Junior legal pads, Flat pops from Office Snax, and more.
After receiving the supplies, Treasurer for Elgin Local Schools, Kim Reynolds, called Friends management to let the company know that she would recommend Friends to other school districts, going forward.
