Fluid Management Hosts Concert with 123 Andrés, Continue School Partnership
July 5, 2022
Fluid Management (FM), which manufactures paint dispensing and mixing equipment in Wheeling, Illinois (USA), recently partnered with Jane Addams Elementary school to sponsor a Spring Concert with Latin Grammy winning children’s music duo 123 Andrés! The group performs “Spanish and English songs for little language learners.”
In their sixth year of the partnership, FM & Jane Addams school invited 123 Andrés to play during a school assembly, where over 500 kids enjoyed the interactive concert during the school day. FM team members volunteered to support the event by helping set-up and also put together goodie bags for students.
With funding from the IDEX Foundation, the school also hosted a concert for the community.
“It was incredible to see the engagement from the kids, families, and staff at Jane Addams. The concert was a huge hit, and the principal and teachers were very appreciative of the opportunity to support this unique cultural experience.” Said Mark Bishop, VP of Human Resources
Located near FM’s office, Jane Addams Elementary school serves over 500 students from Pre-K through 6th grade with 79% minority enrollment. Since partnering with the school in 2016, employees have assisted in several projects, including volunteering at the schools’ track and field day, science night, literacy night, funding the “One School One Book” program and more.
