Happy Holidays from Asset Plus!
On Friday, December 11th, KIPP Third Ward welcomed over 100 Asset Plus employees for a day of service. KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory charter schools dedicated to preparing students in under-resourced communities throughout the United States.
KIPP Third Ward is home to an elementary school, KIPP Peace, and a middle school, KIPP Liberation. Asset Plus joined forces with the faculty of these two schools to create 10 different beautification projects to enhance the KIPP Third Ward Campus. Over 20 KIPP students worked alongside Asset Plus employees on these projects which included planting 25 trees, installing 40 flower boxes, adding new pavers along sidewalks, leveling muddy areas of campus with decomposed granite, mulching and pruning trees, flowers, and shrubs, and building 15 picnic tables.
KIPP is founded on a promise to see their students to and through college. They believe that "all students can learn and achieve at high levels if given the opportunity." With the completion of these projects, we hope that we were able to contribute to the incredible goals of this organization and the students they are serving.
Thank you to the following generous vendors for their donations: Outdoor Elements, Sherwin Williams, PAS, Trees for Houston, FSI, HD Supply, Wilmar and Houston Tool Bank. None of this would have been possible without you all.
We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to serve during this holiday season. From our family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
