The Employee Volunteer Organization on the Pratt & Whitney West Palm Beach Campus recently hosted its annual school supply drive for students in the community.
More than 20 backpacks were supplied to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office to be distributed to children in the area.
The employee volunteers conducted employee drawings and other promotions that resulted in their donating boxes of school supplies and more than $500 in cash to the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County’s Red Apple School Supply Store, where teachers from Title 1 schools in the Palm Beach County School District can shop to provide children in their classes with all the tools they need to succeed in school.
Also, Pratt & Whitney, in support of its employees’ efforts, donated an additional $5,000 to the store.
