Banjo, Lukas Provide Holiday Support for Boys & Girls Club, Food Pantry
January 13, 2022
Banjo Corporation in Crawfordsville, Indiana, recently began a partnership with the Montgomery Boys & Girls Club, partnering with the club on activities last quarter. In collaboration with the IDEX foundation, the club received $15,000 USD to help fund the hiring of additional teachers, and help purchase supplies for STEM activities. The donation will also be used to buy new Chromebooks for students to use.
Additionally, Banjo team members funded an end of the semester holiday party for the after-school students, providing a safe bounce house, snacks and more. A small group of team members also volunteered to paint two large rooms at the club facility while the kids were on holiday break.
Lukas in Erlangen, Germany, also supported the local community during the holidays last month. To further fight hunger insecurity in the community, the team partnered with the IDEX Foundation to donate $5,000 USD to Tafel Erlangen.
Tafel Erlangen, an initiative of the Diakonisches Werk Erlangen, is a German-based food bank that takes high quality surplus foods and distributes it to people in Erlangen and surrounding areas. Every year, the organization saves around 265,000 tons of food, which they pass on to over 1.6 million people.
