Employees to donate school supplies and volunteer in support of the Family Scholar House.
Louisville, KY., July 2, 2018 – Car Keys Express is pleased to announce their partnership with the Family Scholar House to provide school supplies to students in need. During the back-to-school season, Car Keys Express employees are gathering requested items for donation. Later this month, volunteers from the company will deliver the donations to the Louisville Family Scholar House campus and participate in sorting and distributing supplies.
“Fall brings more than back-to-school time; it also brings additional expenses. The financial burden of purchasing school supplies is only increasing as the cost of school supplies continues to rise,” said Kalyn Kasun, Director of Human Resources for Car Keys Express. “By providing school supplies to those in need, we're helping kids in our community start their school year on the right foot.”
The Family Scholar House is dedicated to ending the cycle of poverty and transforming the Louisville community by empowering families and youth to succeed in education and achieve life-long self-sufficiency. Car Keys Express is supporting the Family Scholar House as part of its CKE Cares initiative, which includes a community outreach program focused on the neighborhood around the company’s corporate headquarters in Louisville, KY.
“We believe in serving our local, national, and global communities. Being actively involved with local nonprofits gives us the opportunity to be hands-on and do more than just write a check—which, of course, we also do. Our team wants to get out from behind their desks and do work in the community, and we’re happy to give them those opportunities.” said Car Keys Express Founder and Owner Mark Lanwehr. “What drew me Family Scholar House was the ability to have an immediate, positive effect on the community. Providing supplies to struggling families gives students and teachers the tools they need to start the school year off right.”
