Students, families and staff from Primrose School at Summerwood demonstrated their commitment to giving back, raising $5,500 for local and national charities through a Spring Fling event held on April, 28th. The funds raised will be split between Summerwood Elementary and the Primrose Children’s Foundation, the not-for-profit organization of Primrose Schools® that supports national charitable partners like Save the Children.
“At Primrose, we’re committed to teaching our students about helping others and giving without expectation,” said Brandi Muse, Owner at Primrose School at Summerwood. “Our annual Spring Fling event is one way we do this. Not only are we able to give back to our wonderful community, but it also gives local families an opportunity to come together in a fun way.”
Summerwood Elementary will use the donated proceeds from the Spring Fling event to purchase additional technology components for the students to use in the classrooms. “After growing up in our school, many of our students continue their education at Summerwood Elementary. We love the fact that we can not only support our former students, but all of the students from the Summerwood community,” said Muse.
Funding raised for the Primrose Children’s Foundation will be used to support Save the Children, the world’s top independent charity for children in need and national partner of Primrose Schools. The organization has robust and impactful programs in the United States, such as child sponsorship and emergency preparedness, that provide children living in poverty with the skills and resources they need to succeed in school and in life.
