Our strategy is to direct our efforts thoughtfully and purposefully throughout the learning continuum – from our work with Feeding America to provide nourishment to food-insecure children to enhance learning readiness; to our collaboration with the MIND Research Institute to provide innovative math learning; to our partnership with DonorsChoose.org that enables individuals to contribute to classrooms in need. We also support The First Tee, United Way, Junior Achievement and local schools, among others, to provide support to the full continuum.
