Today (7/9/12) we are processing orders for the 1st books program. The process is the same as what employers are doing in their operations and it helps us make a great teaching point. What they process today has the greatest impact on the supply chain.
Most of you might know about our partnership with the First Book program but for those who do not:
“First Book provides access to new books for children in need.
To date, First Book has distributed more than 90 million books and educational resources to programs and schools serving children from low-income families throughout the United States and Canada. First Book is transforming the lives of children in need and elevating the quality of education by making new, high-quality books available on an ongoing basis.”
When VULTEC opened we quadrupled FirstBook.org’s warehouse and processing power. It also gives us to instill pride in our students works as they know that what they process will be a needy child’s first book. The lasting impact of this can not be measured, both in the children and our students.
