RSP is partnering with Back 2 School Illinois (B2SI) as part of its commitment in Chicago neighborhoods and its inaugural charitable event. Through partnerships like these, B2SI distributes free school supplies to children from low-income families in the form of Back 2 School kits.
RSP will contribute over 400 kits through a firm pledge donation and a matching effort of employees’ outreach to clients, family and friends this past fall. Their efforts will culminate in a day-long Build-A-Kit School Supplies event on November 8 when firm employees and friends gather to assemble the kits at RSP’s main office in Chicago downtown. Each kit contains age-appropriate core supplies that students need to succeed in the classroom.
“We know education is the cornerstone to a better life, and we believe all children deserve equal access to good education. Lack of basic supplies shouldn’t hold anyone back,” said Jennifer L. Barton, shareholder at RSP. “I’m excited for the new relationships we’re building and really proud of our employees who have taken this cause to heart and put in extra effort this fall. Most people think about back to school supplies in the fall, but the need continues all year.”
