The local business community’s newest member, Sam’s Club, showed its support for students and schools with a $5,000 grant to Treasure Hills Elementary School to fund the school’s video production enrichment program.
As a corporate policy, Sam’s Club stores offer $20,000 in grants to give to local organizations in their community.
“The coming years are going to be great and I look forward to supporting the organizations of the city of Harlingen,” Sam’s Club Market Manager Steven Chadwick said to the Valley Morning Star.
Treasure Hills will be using the funds for the purchase of equipment necessary for the production of THE News (Treasure Hills Elementary News), a student led broadcast, principal Roland Ingram said.
“The goal is to help students reach out to their community, build soft skills and, most of all, to provide a unique opportunity for THE students to engage in something that is both fun and educational
