Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation, one of the fastest-growing pharmaceuticals companies in the nation, has donated $5,000 to the COVID-19 emergency fund established by Communities In Schools of the Midlands.
Since schools closed on March 16th, Communities In Schools of the Midlands has transitioned its in-school service model to operate outside of the school walls to meet the needs of 300 students with critical needs in Richland and Lexington Counties.
The economic impact of the nonprofit sector represents 5.4% of the workforce and over 90,000+ employees in South Carolina. Therefore, it’s critical that nonprofit organizations like Communities In Schools of the Midlands build lasting relationships across the community with businesses, volunteers, agencies, healthcare providers, and educators – to help students stay focused today, so they can go further tomorrow.
“By delivering wraparound services to students and families with immediate needs, we support students in ways beyond the classroom,” said CEO Tanika Epps. “With the support of Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation, we are afforded with the financial resources to meet the rising needs of those most vulnerable in rural area schools and communities.”
“We want to make sure vulnerable children in the Midlands feel safe and loved,” said Nephron CEO Lou Kennedy. “Communities In Schools of the Midlands is caring for our children in need, just as they have for more than three decades, and we are particularly grateful for the work they continue to do during this unprecedented time.”
