#LikeArnie @DonorsChoose Unboxing

The Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation supported @DonorsChoose Keep Kids Learning, ensuring kids+teachers stay connected in communities in which PGA TOUR events had been canceled or rescheduled, then honored the 2019 champions of those events with a gift—supporting education and our TOUR family, just #LikeArnie

The Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation has embarked on an Immediate Relief Giving Plan to help communities impacted by the pandemic.  Donations were made to charities all over the country – with a special donation in support of DonorsChoose.  Ensuring kids and teachers are able to stay connected in communities in which PGA TOUR event have been canceled or rescheduled, we honored the 2019 champions with this donation and a special gift.

DonorsChoose was selected as a national partner to help meet the needs of school aged children.  This organization is led by a group of teachers who review requests for school supplies and programs submitted by other teachers.  Once a request is approved and donors are reached through grassroots fundraising – the supplies are shipped directly to the teachers for use in their classrooms.  
When the Coronavirus closed schools across the country, it was clear there was a need to get supplies to students’ homes in order for them to continue learning, especially in the communities hardest hit by the pandemic.  DonorsChoose knew something needed to be done so they took action and started their Coronavirus Relief Program Keep Kids Learning on March 18th, 2020.
Since the program launched, DonorsChoose has been able to connect with over 10,000 teachers!  The Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation is proud to partner with DonorsChoose and the Keep Kids Learning initiative, helping to support students and teachers across the nation during this difficult time just #LikeArnie would.
