Our 2020 Social Mission Partner: After- The- Bell
At Fig, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. Our 2020 Social Mission Partner is After-The-Bell, an impactful nonprofit whose good work contributes immensely to our thriving, local community.
AFTER-THE-BELL is a free after-school program for all middle school students registered with the Kennett Consolidated School District. After-TheBell provides a fun learning experience in a safe, supervised environment. Students are provided a healthy after-school snack, participate in fun and engaging activities, and then are offered a bus ride home —all at no cost to families, the school district or tax payers.
With more than 40 diverse activities to choose from, students can be sure to find something new, fun, and educational. After-The-Bell is in it’s 21st year and has served over 6,000 students. This wonderful program has been made possible due to the generosity and tremendous dedication of foundations, local businesses, and community members who have donated both time and financial resources to make a difference in the lives the young members of our community.
