Donors Making a Difference: Craig Stein Beverage

Craig Stein Beverage is matching donations through the end of the year, up to $2,000!

Over the last 10 years, CSB has invested over $100,000 to support the mission of the Foundation for VPS, supporting many areas affecting student success. Funds were used for Basic Needs support, including the Emergency Checkbook Program (available for each of the 36 VPS principals), Winco gift cards, gas cards, and Goodwill vouchers which provide families with access to food, gas, clothing, and household goods. Their recent donations have also gone to support mentoring programs like Lunch Buddies, provide family engagement and nutrition programs, and support the Go Ready back to school readiness festival. They have been a sponsor of our Annual Luncheon multiple years and employees collected over 350 lbs of school supplies during last fall’s Write from the Start School Supply Drive.

We are grateful to have CSB as a “Community Champion” level partner as we work to address barriers to learning associated with poverty and inspire success for all students.
