Donors Make a Difference With School Supply Donation
The first day of school will look and feel a bit different this year, and it is no surprise that the impact of COVID-19 has made itself present in the lives of many of our families.
ICI Construction, Inc., the Klein ISD Education Foundation, and the Klein Police Department teamed up to donate school supply packs for elementary, intermediate, and high school students.
This year, the Klein ISD Police Department came together to assist in collecting donations for school supplies while also contributing $4,700 out of their own pockets.
“With everything going on with COVID-19, the Klein ISD Police Department felt more than ever this year that we needed to help make sure EVERY student has the supplies they need for a successful school year,” Klein ISD Police Chief David Kimberly said.
Thanks to this donation by these community partners, over 1,400 students will receive school supplies. These kits included items such as paper, notebooks, folders, glue, construction paper, pencils, pens, scissors, markers, and more. Each kit was customized to fit the need at a particular grade level.
“I am so happy to be working with all the Directors of the Klein ISD Education Foundation and the Klein ISD community to help facilitate the purchase and delivery of school supplies to the various campuses throughout the district,” Klein ISD Education Foundation President Bill Lakin said. “It is overwhelming to see firsthand the generosity of businesses and families willing to go above and beyond to help our kids.”
For 11 consecutive years, ICI Construction, Inc. has graciously provided support to aid in the success of students in Klein ISD. Their donation of $10,000 towards the purchase of school supplies this year is so appreciated.
“ICI Construction, Inc. enjoys the opportunity to help students acquire the tools needed to succeed in getting a great education,” Executive Vice President and Co-Owner Tom Cobb said. “There is no greater feeling than giving back to the children who need it most.”
Klein ISD is incredibly grateful for the overwhelming support of our entire community in helping us ensure that every student has the tools to achieve greatness this school year.
