WLA Member Buccini/Pollin Group Surprised Local School Students With Needed Supplies

With the end of November upon us, typically we see acts of goodwill and individuals giving back due to “holiday cheer”. For BPG, giving back happens year round: from their annual day of service in honor of Sean Locke to supporting the Wilmington.Love Initiative.   Volunteering and giving back is a core part of BPG so it is no surprised just before the start of the giving season, they set the bar for others.

 

BPG Donates

 

On November 13th, employees of BPG family of companies surprised the students and faculty of the Christiana School District in Wilmington with thirteen boxes of school supplies. Thanks to the combined efforts of residents in BPG buildings and BPG employees collected art supplies, uniforms, games for indoor recess days and teacher supplies.

 

“We are so grateful for BPG’s kind support of Christina schools,” said Richard L. Gregg, Superintendent of the Christina School District. “Our students and staff were truly touched by BPG’s surprise visit to their schools and by the generosity shown by everyone in the BPG community who so kindly donated items to help our young learners reach their highest potential this year.”

 

Summarised from the article “BPG Teams Up With Christina Surprise Squad to Thrill Students and Teachers With 13 Boxes of School Supplies for Students in Need” on BPG’s Blog.
