Teneo Hospitality Group has partnered with the Kids in Need Foundation to raise money to purchase teacher supply boxes for classrooms in need in each city they visit for their new CSR initiative. Teneo's goal is to supply at least two boxes of school supplies in five classrooms in every city they visit, which would mean more than 100 students would be impacted in each city.
Teneo launched this CSR initiative on April 23 and are working toward a goal of $1,500 at each event they host. "We're excited to share the feedback we receive along the way!" says Ashley Crunstedt, CMP, Teneo director of events.
The Kids in Need Foundation, which has all of the supplies for the packages, helps with putting together the packages and shipping supplies directly to local schools that they've determined are most in need. With their help, Teneo is able to help schools while keeping their carbon footprint to a minimum.
"We have a passion for partnerships and giving back all year round," Crunstedt says. "We wanted to work with an organization that has a national presence, but that makes an impact on a local level."
