VectorCSP donates school supplies to local teachers

By January 2012 February 18th, 2016 News & Events

Each year vectorCSP and their employees strive to give something back to the community in which we do business. This year was no different. For the past five years, we have worked with the Elizabeth City Pasquotank County School District to purchase and provide necessary items that the teachers need for their classrooms, but might not receive without donor assistance or through their own personal expense. The past three years, vectorCSP has donated a case of copy paper to every classroom teacher in the district.

After months of preparation by the Service Committee team and many vector volunteers, January 24th marked the kick-off of three exciting evenings where Company volunteers gathered at Standard Tile to meet and greet the teachers and distribute 485 cases of paper, compliments of vectorCSP. In addition to giving a case of paper, gift bags containing basic school supplies and coupons were also handed out. The school supplies were donated by Vector employees who put into action one of the intentions of the vectorCSP motto which is to Give back to our community .

Many local businesses came together with Vector to support the schools. Standard Tile allowed us to use their warehouse as a distribution center for three days; thank you Mark Meads. Other businesses supported the cause by donating coupons to include in the teacher gift bags; Chick-fil-A, Muddy s, UPS and Office Max gave abundantly.

It was a team effort, and we thank everyone for their generosity and hard work.
