At Effectv, we believe that the happiness, health, and growth of children is the pillar to any strong community.
That’s why we’re committed to making a positive impact in the markets we serve by ensuring children have the opportunity to succeed in the classroom.
For the second year in a row, we teamed up with the Kids in Need Foundation to donate 2,800 backpacks filled with school supplies and inspiring notes to students in six cities across the country – Houston, Detroit, Seattle, Richmond, Miami, and Jersey City.
Our employees across the country came together to write uplifting notes, wishing students a happy and successful school year. These messages were then placed in every backpack, along with notebooks, pens, markers, glue sticks, and many more school essentials. Effectv team members then personally handed out all of the backpacks to eager and excited kids at back-to-school events.
We truly believe that it’s important for every child to have access to the tools they need to do well in school, as that foundation sets them up for a promising future. Our partnership with Kids in Need Foundation isn’t just a corporate initiative, but one that creates a tangible impact by bringing our own employees together through community service.
Watch the video below for a recap of our initiative to empower students across the country.
