HARDEE, MASSEY & BLODGETT CONTINUES SUPPORT ENC TEACHERS PROGRAM
August 23, 2021
Support ENC Teachers, a program sponsored by Hardee, Massey & Blodgett, LLP, a personal injury law firm in Greenville, NC, heads into its second year. The firm has updated the Support ENC Teachers Facebook page so teachers can now add their 2021-2022 Amazon wish lists.
The firm created Support ENC Teachers, a community Facebook page, in August 2020 as a way to provide teachers with a centralized place to share their classroom wish lists for the school year. By starting this program, the firm hoped to encourage individuals and local businesses to support teachers by shopping from their classroom wish lists.
“Obviously, we hoped the program would be successful, but we weren’t sure what to expect in our first year,” states Kyle Blodgett, Partner at Hardee, Massey & Blodgett. “We are pleased to say that the program exceeded our expectations by raising over $10,000 for teacher school supplies during the 2020-2021 school year.”
With the posted wish lists, someone can support local teachers by purchasing one or multiple items from the wish list, as well as shop for more than one teacher at a time. Individuals can also support the program by liking and sharing the Support ENC Teachers Facebook page to help spread the word. This is a great way to ensure teachers have the appropriate supplies to educate students and provide children with classrooms filled with the proper educational tools.
The program works by teachers going to the Facebook page, clicking on Photos, and selecting the Pitt County album. They then pick the album that corresponds with their last name. In the comments, they can add a photo, fun facts, and a link to their Amazon wish list. Members of the community can go to the albums, find specific teachers’ lists, make purchases, and have them shipped directly to the teacher. This program helps teachers in two ways, through the donation of others as well as through the law firm’s donations.
“We look forward to continuing this program during the 2021-2022 school year with a new goal of $20,000,” notes Brack Massey, Partner at Hardee, Massey & Blodgett. “We hope by doing this we continue to show our appreciation and support to local teachers and students.”
The firm will do live drawings every 2-3 weeks via Facebook Live, with hopes of the first drawing taking place in the next week or two. Last year Greenville Nissan sponsored several classroom drawings, and the firm is currently looking for other businesses interested in partnering with them this year.
