Zurixx Puerto Rico to Hold Back-to-School Drive
August 22, 2017 – In the spirit of connecting with our community, Zurixx Puerto Rico employees will be collecting various school supplies over the next month to support a local school.
On Tuesday, July 11th, Zurixx Puerto Rico announced to our staff that we would be conducting a school supply drive to benefit a local public school.
Zurixx employees have been encouraged to give everything from No. 2 pencils and erasers to calculators, scissors, art supplies, and even binders and backpacks. Please see below for a complete list of what we hope to donate.
The school that receives the supplies will be decided at a later date, but Zurixx will deliver the supplies before the start of the new school year. Most local public schools go from K to 9th grade, meaning there is a wide variety of age groups and needs.
“A lot of the schools in our community have tight budgets and students from lower-income areas, so we are happy to contribute in any way we can,” said Zurixx Puerto Rico President Cris Cannon. “As a company that specializes in financial education seminars we obviously understand and respect the importance of a quality education, and that includes the basics of even just having enough supplies to start the school year.”
Zurixx is a proud supporter of local communities, with total donations estimated over $615,000 in the past year alone. We have donated to The Huntsman Cancer Institute, co-sponsored 5K walk/runs, donated laptops to deserving students and a community library, and more.
