HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF. -- Teacher Created Materials (TCM), a leading educational publisher located in Huntington Beach, Calif., will team up with Catarina’s Club and the KFI Am 640’s Bill Handel Show to help provide a warm, nutritional dinner to underprivileged children.
Caterina’s Club, a local charity, is helping feed over 1,200 hungry kids every day at the White House Restaurant in Anaheim. Teacher Created Materials will assist the organization by turning their Huntington Beach office into a drop-off location for pasta and pasta sauce donations. Along with collecting and encouraging their own employees to help, Teacher Created Materials will donate an additional $10,000 to the organization to increase their overall contribution.
By participating in this food drive, “we hope to get healthy and much-needed meals to the local children who are in need,” says Deanne Mendoza, Executive Vice President of Teacher Created Materials. “As an educational publisher, we want all children to have the opportunity to learn, and having proper nutrition and an adequate amount of food is an important part of the learning process for children.”
Teacher Created Materials Encourages Everyone to Help Out
Teacher Created Materials is rallying its employees, neighbors, families, and friends to also help the cause. The company’s staff will be collecting pasta and pasta sauce donations from anyone who wishes to support Catarina’s Kitchen.
