Vehicle Service Group (VSG) is helping elementary school students in Jefferson County, Ind., districts stay warm this winter by donating hats and gloves to them.
The donation was part of VSG’s effort to give back for #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement encouraging people and organizations to transform their communities, according to a news release from the company.
The “Stay Warm — Stay Healthy” program will provide a logoed hat in school colors, a pair of gloves, and a card with winter health tips to more than 2,200 students at Jefferson County’s five public and private elementary schools. The program’s mission is to promote health and safety during the winter months among the community’s children.
VSG and school officials came together on Dec. 1 to deliver the winter gear to the students.
“We are so very excited to be a part of VSG’s Stay Warm — Stay Healthy campaign,” said Ashley Schutte, communications coordinator at Madison Consolidated Schools, which is reportedly the county’s largest school district. “VSG continues to be a very generous educational partner and is a blessing to our schools in many ways for all students. The gift of warmth is a meaningful way to show how much they care for our kids. These beanies and gloves are a wonderful gift for our Future Cubs that will keep giving year after year.”
“It’s our job as community leaders to ensure the health and well-being of those around us,” said David Fischmer, director of marketing for VSG. “The Stay Warm — Stay Healthy program provides students with the essentials they need to help stay healthy during the cold winter weather and show a little school pride at the same time.”
VSG is the parent company of 13 brands in the vehicle lift, wheel service, and collision repair markets including Rotary, Chief, Forward, Ravaglioli, and Direct-Lift.
