“We are proud to support the Promise Zone”
H&S Companies set out to raise $75,000 for the Newaygo County Promise Zone program in the fall of 2017, and they are proud to announce that in just over 6 months they have achieved it.
Jack Hendon, Co-Founder of H&S Companies would like to thank the community and all those who have participated in this program. “We are proud to support the Promise Zone and increased educational opportunities for all local students, and could not have reached our goal without the help of our clients, friends, and employees who have generously contributed,” he said.
Dan Slate and Jack Hendon invited employees across all their offices, as well as clients and friends, to participate in the program. They themselves pledged to match up to $15,000, and H&S matched up to $10,000 for every dollar donated to the Promise Zone, up to a total of $25,000. The Fremont Area Community Foundation provided an additional match of $.50 for every dollar they raised.
“Let’s celebrate our 75 years of business by raising $75,000 for education,” said Dan Slate, Co-Founder of H&S Companies. He thought $75,000 made for a good amount, because while H&S is celebrating 35 years this year (1983-2018), the wealth management and IT divisions of the firm are each celebrating 20 years (1998-2018), for a total of 75 years.
The Promise Zone is a scholarship program available to students who graduate from Newaygo County high schools or home schools and live in the Newaygo County Regional Educational Service Agency area. The scholarships cover tuition and fees for two-year awards at Baker College and Muskegon Community College, up to the value of the prevailing tuition rate of MCC.
H&S Companies encourages you to join them in contributing to the continued success of the Promise Zone program.
