Voyage Home Loans Donates School Supplies to Freeport Elementary School

Voyage Home Loans provides school supplies to third graders.

Sacramento, CA, September 17, 2010 --( Voyage Home Loans donated $480 worth of school supplies to 60 third grade students of Freeport Elementary School of Sacramento on Friday, September 10.

Each student received a binder and a goody bag full of school supplies, which included scissors, colored pencils, crayons, watercolor sets, a highlighter, a glue stick, a ruler, four pencils and four erasers. They also provided each of the three third grade classrooms with notebook paper, copy paper, colored paper, tissues, and alcohol-free hand sanitizer.

“It was wonderful! The students were very surprised when they were given their very own bag of supplies,” said Freeport Elementary Principal Amy Whitten. “They were thrilled. We thank Voyage so much for coming by the school with the donation.”

Voyage’s Team Goodness wanted to donate to Freeport Elementary when they learned in August that 100 percent of the enrolled students receive free breakfast and lunch; student achievement is historically low and the school has not met its academic targets for the past five years; and many students are from low-income homes and cannot afford to buy the school supplies they need.

By September, Voyage employees had contributed $300 toward the school supplies, some employees had donated supplies they had purchased for the students themselves, and the company added an additional $180.

“We are happy to have an opportunity to donate to a great event,” said Josh Harmatz, CEO of Voyage. “This is our first time working with Freeport Elementary and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
