Investments in knowledge generate the greatest interest.” Benjamin Franklin. The Shopko Coupons also believes that education is of fundamental importance for people’s lifelong success, permanent health, and functionality in society.
Many of our retail stores are located in small cities throughout the country. That’s why the Shopko establishment is always looking for opportunities to support these communities and enrich the lives of the people who live there. The city of Kiel, Wisconsin, with a population of 3,738, is one of those special places.
The Kiel School District used the money education grant, which provides critical financial support while raising awareness of budget issues in education. Over the past two years, the Shopko has provided more than $ 7,000 to help provide school supplies for families in need, technological improvements, playground equipment, and Challenge Day a program that goes beyond traditional efforts to fight against intimidation, the creation of empathy and the inspiring school, a broad movement of compassion and positive changes. For help in buying Kiel Historical Society flags and the youth football club in support Kiel donations for the police department and even the annual city picnic, we are proud to play an active role in creating a better place in Kiel
“Companies come and talk a lot about how they want to be part of the community, the rare breeds and the precious stones that really activate and do something are what we like,” says Kiel police chief David about Shopko,
In Green Bay, Wisconsin, our story begins. And, although Shopko Coupons is determined to offer all the communities we serve, we will always provide the place where we started. Thanks to the Green Bay Community Grants Program, the Shopko Foundation provides charitable services, events, and events that support large-scale or long-term projects throughout the community.
The Shopko furnish seeks to use its grants not only to support the underlying causes but also to invest in the future. It was this opportunity that brought us to John Ben Berg and the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay. The club needed financial help to launch a program called Teens 2 Work. The plan was to train a diverse group of adolescents at greater risk for the world of work, helping them to find entry-level jobs and train them in other important professional development skills.
“The last game here is to break the cycles of poverty,” explains Ben Berg. “It’s not just a salary, but a professional and family support.” The Shopko is proud to have sponsored this program from the beginning. However, our support goes beyond writing a check. Teens 2 Work participants travel to the Shopko headquarters, where prospects for potential careers are expanding. Shopko Coupons also gladly offered to work for Teens 2 Work participants in stores in the Green Bay area. We believe that investing in these students today creates a stronger workforce for tomorrow.
