It is important to focus our donations locally and contribute more to our community.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
For the second year in a row, The Flag Company, Inc. is pleased to continue their participation in Acworth Elementary School's Partner in Education program in the Atlanta area while adding to the roster a sponsorship to the Cobb County's 5K Run benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and committing to Kennesaw State University's business intern program.
"We feel it is important to focus our donations locally and contribute more to our community, and these programs are good opportunities for us," says Vicki Lawrence, President of The Flag Company, Inc.
As Vicki manned the post at Acworth Elementary School as a "greeter" the first day of school recently, helping orient new students and parents on campus, The Flag Company, Inc. also donated USA flags and the state of Georgia flags for the school flagpole. Because judging the 4th and 5th grade science projects was so much fun last year, there will be additional events planned for The Flag Company's participation this year.
In new developments, The Flag Company, Inc. donated to the Cobb County 5K Run of which all the proceeds go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, along with taking on a senior student from the Kennesaw State University's business program as an intern. The student is working as a customer service representative in the stock merchandise department and also learning custom department duties.
Vice President of The Flag Company, Inc., Mike Lawrence, noted that as a two-time winner of one of Cobb County's Chamber of Commerce Top 25 Small Business of the Year award, it's a pleasure to be present among fellow citizens and lend a hand.
"Not only are we pleased to continue our initial involvement, we are now seeking ways to participate more in community programs, and we encourage other businesses to do the same," says Mike.
