Many years ago, Jared Littmann, realized that as a neighborhood store, that he needed to give back. And Cash For Schools was born. The concept was simple. When a customer makes a purchase, they can donate a small amount to a designated school and K&B True Value Hardware would match it up to $5000.
Since its inception in 2009, K&B True Value Hardware and their customers have donated a whopping $34,448 to our local schools.
This year, in addition to the $5000 match from K&B, Bay Ridge Wine & Spirits decided to offer their own $5000 match for contributions between $5000 and $10,000. And not to be outdone, Severn Bank joined the team this year with an additional $5000 match for contributions between $10,000 and $15,000!
In the end, there was a potential for a $30,000 contribution.
With the community’s collective efforts, $30,514 has been raised for local schools!
The chart below shows the level of support the community has for our local schools.
On October 29th, checks will be presented to the Principals (or their representative) of the 15 area schools that received donations.
Littmann, the owner of K&B Tue Value Hardware had this to say, ” I think this demonstrates incredible support in the community for the work that schools are doing to educate and protect the kids in our community. The teams at K&B True Value, Bay Ridge Wine & Spirits, and Severn Bank thank our customers and our schools for their parts in making this such a successful program.”
