Context on School Supply Company

Here's a quick background on why I like 1st Day over the many other supply kit makers. As our Board will tell you, this is a very competitive industry, but only 1st Day is hiring individuals with disabilities as a part of their mission. That is near and dear to my heart. Here's the blurb they prepared about that commitment:

Before the weekend arrives, don’t forget to take just a minute and order your child’s back to school supply kit from 1st Day School Supplies! With... just a few clicks of your mouse, you can be done with next year’s back to school shopping before your summer officially begins! 
Have you ever wondered just who is making your child’s kit? 1st Day School Supplies is a family owned company taking great pride in not only the products and service they provide, but hiring a very special group of associates! We’d love to share a little bit about the 1st Day School Supplies team with you right now! The team is made up of a who's who of college students. Some of them will go on to become doctors, lawyers, accountants, entrepreneurs and engineers. They are involved in a range of activities including sports, music, and community service.

Associates have achieved many great accomplishments including: pitching a perfect game and winning two Division I national titles in wrestling as well as a NAIA championship team member in basketball. Among our associates we have a national qualifier and an All-American, debate champions, multi-state wrestling titles, and even a rifle state champion. On top of that academically we have one associate who scored a perfect 36 on his ACT. Six of our summer associates are carrying a perfect 4.0.

Working alongside the team of college students is a team of individuals with disabilities. Team members with disabilities help breakdown and prepare supplies that will be kitted. This incredible group of dedicated people are the best in the world at what they do! Many of them compete in Special Olympics. This year, several of our associates played on the state championship softball team and one of the associates placed 2nd in the state in Bocce Ball, while several others competed in volleyball, softball and power lifting!    

Now we’ve given you a little glimpse of the heart and soul of 1st Day School Supplies! So, what are you waiting for? Click the link below and order your kit now!!!
