HVAC controls manufacturer/distributor Jackson Systems, LLC, has again partnered with local businesses to brighten the holidays again this year for the students at William Penn Elementary School #49 in Indianapolis.
William Penn Elementary School #49 is the least privileged of all Indianapolis Public Schools. At School #49, every teacher is invested in their students. They are the voice of the children. Many of the schools’ students are homeless, and many others live in foster care or group homes. The school administrators and teachers know that they have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of their students. They care for their students greatly and strive to help them overcome their many barriers. Offering programs like free breakfast and lunch to all students, utility bill assistance, raising funds for student uniforms, these gracious caregivers go above and beyond for these children they care deeply for.
Each year Jackson Systems provides these kids with winter gloves, books, school supplies, fruit, candy and a classroom party. The kids love the fruit because for many it is a treat not found at home. They get to choose their own book, which in some cases is the first book they have ever owned.
“We feel honored to be welcomed into School #49 to share this holiday party with the kids and faculty again this year,” stated Tom Jackson. “It is a treat to see the excitement and happiness it brings to the kids, as well as to our team members who volunteer.”
Local business partners for this event include ERMCO, National Trade Supply, PC-Help, Direct Connect Printing, Cardinal Insurance, Snap On Tools, Marian University and the U.S. Army. Jackson Systems wants to encourage other businesses to consider adopting a school in their area to make a child’s Christmas a little brighter.
