Roeslein’s Summer Internship Program collaborated with the Community Service Committee under The Roeslein Way and held a Back-to-School Supply Drive to benefit the Little Bit Foundation and Riverbend Middle School. The drive ran from July 19 – August 9, 2021.
Roeslein’s St. Louis office collected items supporting students from kindergarten through high school. These included post-it notepads, tissues, paper towels, zip lock bags, backpacks, notebooks, crayons, writing utensils, and books. The committee and interns met together to count and organize all items donated. Kaitlin Friedrick, Project Manager for Roeslein, donated 79 items and was named top donor.
“The giving nature of our employees exemplifies our organizational culture in action. I am happy to see that our company came together to support two organizations in need as the school year quickly approaches,” Katie Brennan, Human Resources intern said. Katie was one of the organizers for the drive and was one of many summer interns that participated.
