Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting a group of hard-working volunteers from Fidelity as part of Fidelity Cares Day. More than 200 Fidelity employees in North Carolina worked with area nonprofits that day as part of a firm-wide initiative that involved more than 2,000 Fidelity colleagues across the country!
We had a great group of 15 volunteers who built 250 Blast Off to Kindergarten Kits! These kits provide school readiness materials to rising kindergartners in Durham and are a key part of our Transition to Kindergarten (TTK) Initiative. Each one contains items that promote early literacy, enhance emotional and fine motor development, and prompt creativity. The kits these volunteers built were then distributed to Eastway Elementary School, one of our Transition Team schools, as well as to Merrick Moore Elementary and NC Pre-K students at private child care centers.
We had a great time during Fidelity Cares Day and want to extend a huge thanks to Fidelity for including us and volunteering to help young children in Durham!
