Greenbriar Middle School has been offering free and reduced-price lunches to eligible students for a number of years. However, in the past few years, the amount of children and families who have been using these programs has been growing somewhat steadily; at this point, about half of the school’s students can take advantage of these programs. However, once Spring Break and other holidays kick in, many of these students may not have a choice but to go without food for several hours during the day, as their family may not be able to afford it. However, a local law firm called Kisling Nestico & Redick is looking to change that.
The Akron, Ohio-based company recently contacted Parma City Schools’ Director of Family and Community Engagement Kira Karabanovs about making a large food donation to a local school. However, they didn’t know where their donation would make the largest impact. Within a few seconds, Ms. Karabanovs knew where this would be and put Kisling Nestico & Redick in contact with Greenbriar Middle School Principal Jill Schissler. Between them, they were able to sort out the logistics of the donation, although Ms. Schissler didn’t realize how large the donation was going to be. Because of that, she was very pleasantly surprised when 60 bags full of essential foods, such as bread, fresh fruit, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese and more, turned up at the school. Reports suggest that Kisling Nestico & Redick spent over a thousand dollars on the donation.
However, this is only one of the most recent of the law firm donations. Over the past year, the company has been running its KNR Cares About Kids campaign, which aims to help children across Ohio reach their full potential. Because of that, the company has been engaged in a variety of different activities throughout the state. The majority of these philanthropic efforts have been focused on helping underprivileged and at-risk children get the help they need. With that in mind, Kisling Nestico & Redick has been building up quite a reputation for being a law firm that actively helps people in communities across Ohio, regardless of whether or not they’re clients.
This year has been an eventful year, primarily due to weather changes. Hurricane Harvey, for example, affected all the businesses in Dallas. This incident had a major effect on the business environment of this particular geographical location. Fortunately, Stream Energy was on the center stage in helping the Dallas resident through this period of losses and destructions. This particular incident gave the company an idea of Stream Cares- a foundation of giving back to society. As a company that specializes in energy, there was a need for a formally institutionalized philanthropyby the company. Fortunately, it is now a reality to Dallas residence.
How different is Stream Cares from other corporates giving? First, the two entities are different. Stream Energy as a company has always approached humanity issues from a unique and efficient perspective. This foundation paints the correct image of Stream Energy in its approach to tackling homelessness, which according to statistics it is on the rise. The company, therefore, sees this as their responsibility the same they have approached the energy sector by offering real-time solutions to real problems.
Prior to Stream Cares foundation, Stream Energy was active in the philanthropic activities. The company mainly collaborated with like-minded organizations in Dallas. Some of the organizations that the company collaborated with include Red Cross and sometimes Habitat for Humanity. Apart from the two major giants, the company was directly involved in grassroots projects around Dallas neighborhoods. All these collaborations paint the correct picture of an organization that values its clients and their wellbeing.
Where does the company get the money from, to fund all these projects? Stream Energy has heavily invested in the energy sector. All the funding for this particular foundation is part of the profits the company makes from their business. The scope of Stream Energy is on both corporate as well as the domestic level. The company has associates, which work hand in hand with the company and as a result, earn commissions. The entity has expanded its structure, especially on their commission structures in order to accommodate different associates. This structure continues to inspire and empowerresidents of Dallas.
Lovaganza is a type of carnival and circus that focuses on the cultures of our world. It is going to be a worldwide experience that will take place from May until September 2020. In 2015, Warner Brother began work on a film that dates back to 2012, depicting the many experiences in our culture. It starts with Genevieve Gagnon and FF Gagnon entertaining former President and future First Gentleman, Bill Clinton at Michael King’s residence. In 2013, Lovaganza visited the “The Sunshine Shop” in Lancaster, CA. The Gagnons are hoping to raise money to improve the lives of children all around the world by 2050.
Lovaganza is a nonprofit organization that hopes their film productions will shed a light on the problems around the world and inspire other organizations to take action. Lovaganza has some goals set aside. These include nutritious food and clean water for children in third world nations and other impoverished areas on this planet. The organization hopes to supply abundance of clothing, decent housing, and medical care for children. Lovaganza hopes to improve the quality of education for poverty stricken children. Lovaganza is hoping to achieve this mile stone by the year 2035. The research for understanding the quality of life that children live in all over the world has just begun. The Gagnons are working on a special film to enlighten society about what is really going on in the quality of life across the entire world.
Lovaganza is expecting to join forces with all types of organizations and foundations in two years to make sure that they begin working to improve the quality of children between the ages of 0 and 15 in a 17 year project that is just the first milestone of many to come. One of the things Lovaganza hopes to achieve is a traveling library so that children in underprivileged countries can have access to books.
During this decade, the creators of Lovaganza have been all over the world including Brazil, Tahiti, Grimaud,France ,Frigiliana, Spain, in the United States in parts of California and the in the state of Utah. The Gagnons have even met with celebrities, including Julian Lennon and Princess Charlene of Monaco to help get society on board with this project.
