Packers, Kemps provide school supplies through 'Gallons For Good' program

Posted Oct 10, 2013

The Green Bay Packers and Kemps today announced the culmination of the “Gallons for Good” program that, through a donation to the Kids In Need Foundation (KINF), will provide free school supplies to more than 1,000 children in need in the Green Bay and Cedarburg Public School Districts.

The program committed a portion of every gallon of Kemps Select Milk sold in August and September to KINF, up to $40,000. A portion of the supplies will be distributed to the Green Bay Public School District at an event in the Tundra Tailgate Zone at Lambeau Field on Monday, Oct. 14. The remainder of the supplies will be delivered to the Cedarburg Public School District later in the week.

“Kemps has been a great partner to the Green Bay Packers for six years,” said Bill Hawker, Green Bay Packers manager of corporate sales. “When Kemps partnered with us, they not only partnered with the Packers, but with Wisconsin communities. Through the Gallons for Good program, Kemps is showing their commitment to our local communities and schools and we are honored to be a part of it.”

It is estimated that 18 percent of children in Wisconsin currently live below the poverty line and often go without the school supplies necessary to succeed in school, according to Children’s Defense Fund. The Wisconsin schools that will receive supplies from the Gallons for Good program were identified by KINF and the school districts as having at least 70 percent of their students enrolled in the federal free and reduced lunch program.

In addition to helping more than 1,000 Wisconsin students, the program is also donating school supplies to 3,000 students in Minnesota, bringing the total to 4,000 students that will receive supplies in the two states.

“Thanks to the wonderful support from Kemps’ customers we’re able to provide a year’s worth of school supplies to 4,000 children in need,” said Dave Smith, executive director of KINF. “We’re proud to partner with a local company with a dedication to serving its communities and supporting education, and we look forward to providing the much-needed school supplies to these students and teachers. This contribution will not only help provide children with basic learning tools, but also the added confidence they need to be successful in school."

Kemps has been a partner of the Green Bay Packers since 2008 and has committed to giving back to the Wisconsin communities.

“Supporting families through involvement in our communities is one of Kemps’ core beliefs,” said Rachel Kyllo, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Kemps. “That support comes from providing families tools to not only nourish themselves, but nourish their minds. Kemps is honored to provide Minnesota and Wisconsin students with a full year’s worth of school supplies through the Gallons for Good program.”
