There's always a bit of excitement in the air when it's time to start school. Children are excited to meet their new teacher, see old friends again and get new school supplies. Bright yellow pencils, shiney crayons, colorful folders and a brand-new backpack always make start a new school year special. But not all children experience the fun and excitement that a new school year brings.
As part of Year of the Smile, Quarrix employees teamed up with CornerHouse to provide brand-new school supplies to children in need this year. Year of the Smile is about bringing smiles to childrens' faces through acts of kindness in our community. By teaming up with CornerHouse, Quarrix supplied the funds to purchase the school supplies needed and employees stuffed the backpacks full of supplies.
Each employee created a handwritten message for each child and tied the message to the backpack.
Year of the Smile is about putting smiles on children's faces, but it looks like we got the bigger smiles.
