IT Radix Teams Up with Project Readiness to Equip Local Students with Tools for a Successful School Year
Autumn... For many of us, the fall season ushers in thoughts of sweaters, fall foliage, bonfires, and pumpkin spice. For youngsters, fall also means the beginning of a new school year—a fun and exciting time for children! Was one of your favorite childhood memories shopping for back-to-school supplies? Do you remember picking out a new binder, notebooks, glue sticks, markers, and freshly sharpened No. 2 pencils? If you answered yes, you’re not alone. Sadly, for many children, this fall ritual does not bring about warm and fuzzy feelings. Many children in our area need basic school supplies. Thankfully, there are organizations that address this issue. IT Radix recently teamed up with Project Readiness, a local organization that supplies backpacks and school supplies to students of all ages, from first grade to high school.
