Rockford teachers union donates to help the community

The teachers in Rockford Public Schools work each day to reach out to community children who cross the threshold of their classroom. To extend this impact and benefit children both locally and regionally, the Rockford teachers’ union, the Rockford Education Association, has recently made donations to North Kent Community Services and the Salvation Army.

From North Kent Community Services, Sandy Waite, director, and Kevin Kamphuis, employee.

To assist with restocking the North Kent food pantry after a demanding winter, a donation of $500 was made. This donation provides funding to purchase 3,125 pounds of groceries or 6,250 pounds of dairy products.

A donation of $200 was made to the Salvation Army’s Angel Baby drive, a countywide effort jointly pursued by the Kent County Education Association and the Salvation Army. The Angel Baby drive collects critically needed items for children ages 5 and younger. The donation made can be used for diapers, formula, clothing, and children’s safety products.

The Rockford teachers’ union members are proud of their annual efforts to not only educate Rockford’s children but also reach out to the larger community.
