— Stedwick Elementary “Books and Bears” Outreach Project Delivers Books, Teddy Bears,
and Smiles to D.C. Children’s Hospital —
SYKESVILLE, MARYLAND – March 17, 2004. S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows (www.SKRoofing.com) elected to include the Books and Bears outreach program at Stedwick Elementary School as one of the company’s many donation recipients. The company gave the school a donation of $1500 to cover the full cost of purchasing teddy bears for the program. Ms. Denise Fitzgibbon’s 5th grade class at Stedwick Elementary School, located in Montgomery Village, Montgomery County, Maryland created the program to help the many children in Children’s Hospital. The program provides books to help the children learn as well as pass their time in the hospital, and teddy bears so that the children have a new friend to keep them company.
“When Ms. Fitzgibbons’s class asked for our donation, I was touched and inspired by their dedication. The children used a class assignment – writing persuasive letters – to ask for our help.” stated Maija Kropp, Vice President of S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows. “Our company gets hundreds of requests for donations each year, but this one was special. It gave us the opportunity to give back to the community, and to help show Ms. Fitzgibbon’s class how their persuasive writing skills can pay off.”
Through many generous donations, including the donation from S&K Roofing, Siding and Windows, the school obtained 617 books, 150 bears and an additional $1500 for Children’s Hospital’s Doctor Bear Closet. The bears each come with a tag that reads, “Books and Bears Because We Care…From the Children of Stedwick Elementary.”
