Allstar Financial Group, a provider of commercial and personal insurance solutions, announced this week that it has donated backpacks and school supplies to elementary school students in Lewisville ISD.
“Giving back to the communities in which we live and serve is at the core of Allstar Financial Group,” said Andrew Heaner, chairman and CEO of Allstar Financial Group.
In partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation, employees from the company’s 26 offices across the country contributed to the gift through donations from the Allstar Charitable Foundation, according to a company news release. Sixty LISD students — including some at Vickery Elementary School in Flower Mound — who began the school year with inadequate supplies have received backpacks filled with school supplies.
“When students have the supplies they need in the classroom, our studies show they are more engaged in learning,” said Kristine Cohn, senior director of Development and Corporate Partnerships, Kids In Need Foundation. “Allstar Financial Group is stepping up to help students this year with backpacks filled with supplies that will help them succeed. We want to express our appreciation for this generous donation to help those shaping the future of our country.”
