RHP Properties, the nation’s largest private owner and operator of manufactured home communities, has announced a $10,000 donation to support an Illinois school through AdoptAClassroom.org. AdoptAClassroom.org is a national nonprofit that provides funding for U.S. K-12 teachers and schools to purchase materials and tools for their students to learn and succeed.
AdoptAClassroom.org provides teachers and school administrators with an online fundraising platform, plus a private eCommerce marketplace of nearly 30 school supply and school specialty vendors. Through its marketplace, teachers and school administrators can use donations to select exactly what they need for their classrooms and students.
RHP Properties is adopting Willow Springs School. Located in Willow Springs, Ill., the school serves hundreds of children from nearby Sterling Estates; an RHP Properties manufactured home community.
“We are grateful for the generous gift to our students and teachers from RHP Properties,” said Principal Lori Smuda and Superintendent Frank Patrick. “This donation will go a long way to support the work we do for our students.”
“Schools are in dire need of supplies and support right now, even more so due to the ongoing pandemic,” said Ross H. Partrich, CEO, RHP Properties. “We are honored to help a school that not only serves one of our communities, but so many students in Willow Springs.”
“This school year, teachers are spending more of their own money on school materials than ever before to provide their students with basic school supplies, PPE and safety equipment, and distance learning materials,” said AdoptAClassroom.org’s Executive Director Ann Pifer. “Teachers are facing so many challenges during COVID-19 – not having the resources they need to teach shouldn’t be one of them. Donors such as RHP Properties help ease the burden for teachers.”
