Champions for Kids Purell Lend a Hand Program

Posted by Jenna | Thursday, August 07, 2014

**I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and PURELL and have been compensated for my time. All opinions are my own.

With August here it has finally hit me that school will be starting up in just a couple of weeks. Soon two of my kiddos will be back to school which meant we recently spent an evening back to school shopping! It's always fun to do with the kids, as they get excited about all their new supplies and gearing up for the new year! Now that I have two in school I realized more this year how the glue, scissors, folders, etc can add up quickly and is not something everyone can afford (especially the more kids they have).

Starting the school year off on the right foot is important for every child, but for millions of Americans children who live in poverty, they simply do not have the luxury! Thankfully, PURELL Hand Sanitizer has partnered with Champions for Kids and WalMart to help! They want to help ensure students have the supplies they need as they head back to school with the PURELL Lend a Hand Program!

When I was first introduced to this program, I was excited as I'm a big fan of PURELL products. Hand hygiene is one of the most important measures a person can take to reduce the spread of germs that cause illness and infection. Hand hygiene is especially important for school-aged children because they are spending the most time in one room. A study by the makers of PURELL Hand Sanitizer has shown the absenteeism caused by illness was 50% lower in classrooms that used PURELL Hand Sanitizer regularly and implemented a hand hygiene education program than those classrooms that did not.
That's why we're always sure to stock up when it's time for back-to-school - in the car and backpacks especially!

I was so thrilled when asked to be a part of this program and take part in helping children in our community. How the program works....

1. GATHER your family, friends and neighbors for a Lend a Hand Project! Ask guests to bring items kids need in the classroom: pencils, paper, crayons, folders, hand sanitizer, wipes and tissues.

2. LEARN about the needs of children in your community and ways you can help. How can you share your time or resources?

3. GIVE the items you collect to a teacher, school, food bank, or children's shelter.

4. SHARE your project at How many people were involved and how many items did you collect?

We decided to gather some family and ask them to bring some school supplies and of course, PURELL Hand Sanitizer, with them so we could assemble some supplies to bring to the kids' classrooms.

It feels great to help out in a way that I know will help families right in our own town and best of all...I was able to get the kids involved in helping!! What a wonderful thing to do as a family. They loved going through the supplies and getting them ready to take to school.

Once we had everything separated for their classrooms, we got it put in bookbags and ready to take to their teachers!!

This has started a tradition for our family and one I know will continue for many years to come! I hope you will consider taking part in this wonderful initiative as well. You can access PURELL coupons here.

    The remaining 21 season, 15 times the highest honors M88 club level in England belong to Manchester (MU 13, Man City 2) and 6 times Cup of London (Chelsea, Arsenal 3 per team). The absolute dominance of the m88
    team in London and Manchester in the Premier League era poses major challenges for the M88 team at NHA and the rest can only hope for a return to Merseyside with Liverpool and stubborn Everton.
