Keith Knutsson, from Integrale Advisors, Partners with Project LINK
TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / March 3, 2017 / Project LINK, in partnership with Integrale Advisors, announces an "Attendance & Non Tardy Rewards Contest" for students at Broward Elementary School in Tampa. The project provides sponsors with the opportunity to support several classroom celebrations for students with the best attendance and behavioral reports. Students with the most outstanding reports will be placed in a drawing for a free bicycle and helmet.
Keith Knutsson, Chair, Community Advisory Board of Project LINK and President of Integrale Advisors, has partnered with Tina Young, the Executive Director of Project LINK. "I'm excited to be part of this program to help disadvantaged children succeed at school. These children need a little encouragement and this project makes them better understand the importance of discipline and success in life by encouraging them to attend class every day. Some of these children have actually never owned their own bike."
Project LINK is looking for assistance in securing 12 bikes and helmets donated by March 30, 2017 and another 12 bicycles and safety helmets by May 15, 2017. Tina Young states, "We would like to have our first classroom celebration and bike give-away by the end of March 2017. Our goal is to give up to 12 bikes and helmets during the last two grading periods left in school. The estimated cost for securing the bikes and helmets is $1,000, with an additional $500 for 10 classroom celebrations."
Every bike donation counts. With a cost of $100 per bike/helmet, sponsors can donate directly to the Project Link website. Every contribution matters and helps a child. Company sponsors will be able to place their logo on the website of Project LINK, and individual sponsors can partake in the celebration at the school. Help a child attend school and potentially own their very first bike.
