CFK Sponsors, P.S. 15

Apollo Wins the 2014 Change Jar Challenge!

Today marks the end of CFK’s 2014 Change Jar Challenge and–drum roll, please–we have a winner: Team 15 Lead Sponsor, Apollo Global Management! They’ve made it possible for 27 fifth graders at P.S. 15 to go camping. The trip is an essential opportunity for our students, most of whom have never traveled beyond their own neighborhoods. Now, these students will celebrate their graduation with a trip to Club Getaway in Kent, Connecticut.

To send them on their grand adventure–first into the woods, and then into middle school–CFK and Apollo teamed up for Apollo’s Bring Your Child to Work Day. During a day of activities, 26 children of Apollo staff prepared goodie bags for the P.S. 15 grads. The bags included a book of puzzles and games, pencils, CFK temporary tattoos and sunglasses, sunblock, a toothbrush, hand-sanitizer, and a copy of the Dr. Seuss classic, Oh, The Places You’ll Go! Finally, each visiting child wrote a personal note to a graduate. We are thrilled to be able to send P.S. 15′s fifth graders off in style.

Many thanks to all of the Change Jar Challenge participants. The competition may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop collecting change. Next year, there’ll be more prizes and another chance to win. In the meantime, enjoy those Yankees tickets, Apollo!
