Springfield, MA (October 26, 2021) – For the fifth consecutive year, Excel Dryer is lending its support to Square One’s “Adopt A Classroom” initiative, donating $5,000 to provide supplies and meals to the agency’s preschoolers.
“We are proud to support Square One and their ongoing efforts to provide early education services to children in our area,” said Denis Gagnon, president of Excel Dryer. “This organization is a vital part of our community, providing a safe and educational space for young children. We hope our donation can help provide much needed meals and resources for these students.”
Square One’s Adopt-A-Classroom program is part of the agency’s Campaign for Healthy Kids — a multi-year fund development initiative focused on the agency’s commitment to providing healthy meals, physical fitness, social-emotional wellbeing, and a healthy learning environment.
“Long-term success in life starts with a healthy foundation,” says Kristine Allard, vice president of development & communication at Square One. “We are so grateful to Denis and his team at Excel Dryer for supporting us in our mission to ensure that our children are prepared with the tools they need to succeed – academically, physically and socially.”
“We hope that Excel’s continued generosity will inspire others to become involved in this important work,” adds Allard.
Square One currently provides early learning services to over 500 infants, toddlers and school-age children each day; and family support services to 1,500 families each year, as they work to overcome the significant challenges in their lives.
