With back-to-school season upon us, we thought it was the perfect time to deliver supplies to kids in need. We’re big believers in maintaining student mind-sets around the Imminent IL office, as well as giving back to the community. Having the chance to support young learners in need is the ideal team activity for us.
Schools often create lists of needed supplies, asking their teachers which items are most likely to be in demand. If such a list isn’t already available, you can typically ask the principal to compile one. In general, we’ve found that paper, pencils, tissues, and hand sanitizer are appreciated. Classroom supplies such as dry-erase boards, paper clips, binders, and folders are also helpful, because teachers need all the support they can get too.
We’re even more inspired to continue our own professional education after helping kids get the school supplies they need. Ongoing learning has always driven Imminent IL’s success. We enjoy a range of development options in our office and travel to industry events to learn from the best of the best. If we can help students in our area love learning as much as we do, we feel like we’ve met our highest calling.
We would recommend any company to start its own school supplies donation drive. For more on why this is such an important issue to us, follow Imminent IL on LinkedIn.
