Bill Self truly cares about every aspect of wellness in children. His Assists Foundation has made a huge difference for the children of Lawrence, Kansas and the Lawrence Public Library. We can't thank Coach Self and his family enough for their generous support of kids and reading!
From my perspective, I feel so blessed that the Assists Foundation thought highly enough of the GRADE foundation to provide this grant. I think it is a great testament to Bill Self, his family, and the Assists Team that they provide such dedication and unending support to our communities and its children. They represent a perfect model for what philanthropy is all about and it shows how special and caring they are as individuals.
We participated in the first Think Tank of Agencies sponsored by the Assists Foundation. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet individuals with other organizations who are working on educating our youth about the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. We have begun to meet with five representatives from organizations we met directly from the Think Tank. It was a wonderful opportunity to partner with others and learn about how we can work together on the key issues of healthy lifestyles for youth.
Bill Self and the Board of Directors for the Assist Foundation were God's angels for our students in the KCK Public School District. The time and treasure that was shared with our students, is the solid Foundation that is needed for their success. The Assist Foundation seen the need for this Urban Core school district and committed to the success of the student as a whole person.
