Haltom City, TX, November 8, 2011 - For the last several years, Kysor Panel Systems (KPS) in Fort Worth, TX "adopted" the W. T. Francisco Elementary School in nearby Haltom City. Since then, employees have been raising funds and donating other supplies in support of the school and its students with their day-to-day needs.
This year alone KPS has donated $1,200 to the W. T. Francisco Elementary School in addition to other school supplies and backpacks. Employees also volunteered to attend board meetings and served as chaperones on field trip days. Their monetary donations also went towards school trips, improvement projects in the courtyard and aquarium, and other special projects that are in need of financial support.
Without the funds donated by KPS employees, many students would not be able to attend field trips and would not have school supplies to get through the school year. About 85% of the students who attend this school are economically disadvantaged and could not enjoy the level of education as they do now, without any outside help.
Thank you to all the employees of KPS for Building Something Real in your local communities and for supporting these children on their educational path!
