22nd Annual ‘Back to School’ Program

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 5 settembre 2019

To help students in need around the world return to school with confidence, Henry Schein, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSIC) recently held its 22nd annual “Back to School” program. This year, the Company provided nearly 5,000 children with backpacks and school supplies at 32 Henry Schein locations in the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Spain, and Wales. Since the program’s inception in 1998, the Company has helped more than 50,000 children head back to the classroom with confidence.
Children who participate in “Back to School” also take home books and hygiene products donated by Henry Schein, and at many Company locations, first-day-of-school outfits purchased by Team Schein Members. The “Back to School” program is a flagship initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the Company’s global corporate social responsibility program. “Team Schein looks forward to the ‘Back to School’ program every year because it gives us an opportunity to give back to our community and help these amazing kids start another successful school year,” said Gerry Benjamin, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of Henry Schein. “It’s incredible to think that the ‘Back to School’ program is more than 20 years old, but I believe I speak for all of Team Schein when I say our commitment to this program and these families grows stronger every year.”
The Company recently hosted a “Back to School” event for approximately 600 children and their families at its worldwide headquarters in Melville, N.Y. In addition to new clothes and school supplies, the children enjoyed dinner, games, music, crafts, and other fun activities. The children also received free books at the event thanks to the generous support of KPMG LLP – the U.S. audit, tax, and advisory firm – through its Family for Literacy program and partnership with nonprofit social enterprise First Book. A video from the event can be viewed here.The company partnered with 10 local social service organizations to pre-identify the participating children and their families: Bethany House; Espoir Youth Program, Inc.; Family and Children’s Association; Family Service League; Hispanic Counseling Center; Madonna Heights; Nassau County Department of Social Services; The Raymar Children’s Fund; WellLife Network; and YES Community Counseling Center.
