With the assistance of the Topeka Public Schools Foundation, Advisors Excel granted a wish of providing items to each school in the district.
Last spring Pamela Johnson-Betts contacted every TPS principal and asked them to draw up a wish list
of items needed in their school. This fall, those that submitted a wish
list got a visit from Advisors Excel associates bearing gifts and
answering the call for assistance. The company donated $250 worth of
supplies (such as games, recess items, school supplies, socks,
toiletries and many other items) to 19 TPS schools.
from Advisors Excel reported that adopting Topeka Public Schools has
been a great project. She reported they have received "wonderful
feedback from staff" for this endeavor.
Pamela Johnson-Betts said
the Foundation was pleased to help broker the connection as "helping
businesses engage with TPS heightens community awareness of what is
needed in schools, while simultaneously building relationships that help
our students and staff." Pamela also enlisted the organization's
involvement in the annual ShareFest event and 15 Advisors Excel
Associates signed up to work in that activity as well.
Thank you, Advisors Excel, for all you do for our students!
Here are the schools that received gifts from Advisors Excel:
