Reitter, Inc. Helps Promote Service Learning with Donation to See Kids Dream
Reitter, Inc., a 106-year-old, fifth generation stucco and supply company, is giving back to the community with a donation of $5,000 to See Kids Dream.
See Kids Dream is working to expand programming into middle schools to create a pathway for students to continue learning leadership, empathy, and civic engagement. The Reitter, Inc. donation will be used to support one of the Project Dream school programs.
“Reitter, Inc. is committed to giving back to our community. The programs at See Kids Dream help shape future leaders in our own backyard and we are happy to be able to support their efforts. The kids deserve the opportunity to learn leadership skills and ways to make changes that affect them directly,” said Kyle Reitter, VP, Business Development and 5th generation leader.
“We are so thankful for the community support of our initiatives and cannot expand our programming – and the impact we have on some of our most underserved students – without corporate sponsorship. Fritz, Kyle, and Dustin’s generosity is incredible, and we appreciate their support,” said Jill Hofmans, executive director of See Kids Dream.
