VENICE, Fla. – PGT Innovations (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in the premium window and door category, recently donated $6,000 in backpacks and school supplies to make a difference in the lives of local children in need through WorldVision, a global Christian relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
On Thursday, Aug. 22, 28 team members and leaders at PGT Innovations’ North Venice location assisted with the back-to-school season by assembling 250 SchoolTools bookbags. Team members wrote a nice note of encouragement and filled the backpacks with supplies, such as notebooks, binders, pens, pencils, packs of filler paper, pencil pouches, folders, pencil sharpeners, erasers, rulers, crayons, glue sticks, scissors and markers.
PGT Innovations’ company leaders delivered the backpacks to students at Garden Elementary in Sarasota County on Friday, Aug. 23.
“Thank you so much to PGT Innovations and WorldVision for their generosity,” said Amy Archer, Principal at Garden Elementary. “We are so incredibly blessed to live in a community that supports the work we do. Garden Elementary appreciates you.”
Across the county, businesses, schools and groups of all kinds are rolling up their sleeves and joining the SchoolTools campaign, which helps at-risk children. While a simple effort, new school supplies inspire and encourage children to engage in learning and invoking creativity.
