ATLANTA (April 13, 2020) Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation, the charitable arm of Primrose Schools, a high-quality early education and care leader, is proud to partner with Save the Children by pledging $100,000 to their national campaign #SAVEWITHSTORIES to support children impacted by COVID-19.
Millions of children in the United States go to school not just to learn, but also for breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. As schools continue to close due to the pandemic, Save the Children launched #SAVEWITHSTORIES in partnership with Jennifer Garner and Amy Adams to share beloved children’s books on social media, offering fun and education while raising awareness and money to provide proper nutrition and educational resources to children affected by the pandemic.
“At Primrose Schools, our mission is to create a brighter future for all children,” Jo Kirchner, CEO of Primrose Schools and Chair of the Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation said. “The care and needs of children come first and I am proud that the Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation is partnering on this important cause to do just that, and ensure children across our nation have the proper resources to grow, learn and thrive.”
In support, the Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation is matching the first $100,000 donations made to #SAVEWITHSTORIES this site. This donation from the Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation is possible thanks to the generosity of our Franchise Owners, Support Center team and Primrose families, through various annual fundraising efforts. To support at risk children across the United States and make your donation go further, please visit the Primrose Schools Children’s Foundation & Save the Children #SAVEWITHSTORIES donation page.
