KL Donates Back-To-School School Supplies For Florence Fuller Child Development Centers
Kaufman Lynn recently completed their back-to-school backpack drive for Florence Fuller Child Development Centers. The firm handed out backpacks filled with school supplies for this academic year, to help fulfill the needs of the nearly 850 children between the East and West Campus.
The Florence Fuller backpack drive is an annual effort that is made possible through the generosity of Kaufman Lynn’s associates and numerous subcontractors. These donations were corporately matched by Kaufman Lynn. Associates filled enough backpacks for three classes of students and had two additional boxes of supplies to distribute amongst both campuses.
Director of Advancement for Florence Fuller Child Development Centers Diane Shawcross states, “It is because of dedicated community supporters like Kaufman Lynn Construction that we are able to fulfill the supply needs for the nearly 850 children we serve at Florence Fuller to ensure a great start to the new school year.”
Philanthropy and community involvement are an important part of the company culture at Kaufman Lynn, and this year will mark 20 years of support from Kaufman Lynn for the nonprofit organization that relies on private and corporate support for over half of their annual funding.
FFCDC is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of children from economically challenged families, with the goal of preparing children for a lifetime commitment to learning and empowering their families to build a brighter future.
“Kaufman Lynn Construction is proud to be long-time supporters of the Florence Fuller Child Development Centers which continually assist children in need,” said Michael Kaufman, President and CEO of Kaufman Lynn Construction. “More than simply daycare centers, Florence Fuller truly invests in the children they serve by inspiring them to make local and global differences. Nothing compares to the heartwarming smiles and hugs these children offer when we visit.”
The Florence Fuller Backpack Drive is one of the many beneficial programs that Kaufman Lynn Construction organizes through its Positive Workplace Committee. The mission of the internal committee is to create and execute events that promote associate engagement, create a better sense of family among the Kaufman Lynn Construction team, and provide opportunities for involvement and caring within the community. Kaufman Lynn actively supports many not-for-profit organizations in the community with both time and financial resources. The company recently donated hundreds of dollars in pet supplies to the Tri-County Animal Rescue Shelter through its “Donation Drive” program throughout June.
