TRG Invests in the Future, Adopts an Elementary School
In its continuing efforts to make a difference in the community, TRG Group, St. Louis, has adopted Baden Elementary School in North St. Louis County. The principal and staff are committed to the school’s mission “that every child can and will learn in a caring and supportive environment.” The majority of the 300 Pre-K through 6th Grade students are from families challenged with severe poverty.
“It is staggering to comprehend that 281 out of the 300 students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program at Baden,” said event organizer Renee James, senior operations manager, corporate markets. “In years past, too many of these kids arrived at school with few if any school supplies – much less backpacks. We are honored to provide this benefit to this school and these students.”
TRG donated 300+ backpacks filled with magic markers, colored pencils, crayons, pencils, sharpeners, erasers and more. So, thanks to TRG, on the first day of school each student received needed, and perhaps otherwise unattainable, school supplies.
“I don’t think any of us can truly comprehend the needs of these children,” said James. “This small gesture on our part is going to make a significant difference in so many lives.”
