Literacy Night 2019 - Ranger Good Works 10

Literacy Night 2019

Literacy Night 2019 at Dillard Elementary with our Ranger Good Works volunteer team was a great success.  We donated many books to help build the Dillard families’ home libraries. The students loved the evening. Their generous hugs and the special sparkle in thankful eyes assured all of us that we had made an impact on their lives.

Volunteering

It takes awareness and many helping hands to make a difference. We did not accomplish the goal of doing a great job servicing the needs of Dillard Elementary alone. Our Volunteer Professionals strengthened relationships with students by their continued participation and numerous hours of time spent reading to the students, assisting in the classrooms, and much more.

Super Coders Club

As you may already know, the Ranger Good Works initiative was designed to meet the philanthropic needs of Ranger Technical Resources’ employees, friends, and family. Our desire as a company to give back grew stronger and stronger as we continued to engage with the students of Dillard. Therefore, we started a technology club for them called the Ranger Super Coders. The club was designed for students of all ages to provide a great first experience in computer science and coding. We meet for an hour every month to educate students about the importance of computer science by volunteering our time and talent. Our aim is to inspire the younger generation to develop a better understanding of technology and coding by fostering the desire to build, innovate, and dream. Please be sure to check out their progress by visiting www.rangercoders.com.

Music Program

David Morrison is the proud music teacher at Dillard Elementary. He has the privilege of teaching some of the most talented students in the state. Dillard Elementary has a dynamic drum-line that performs all over the tri-county area. Our Volunteer Professional, Johnathon Jadvani, has attended and assisted countless 7:30 am practices. As his volunteer hours added up, it was only a matter of time before he discovered additional ways to aid the drum line. As a result, he was able to provide a connection with Remo for new drum heads for the music class. Now, the group is able to perform loud and clear and can fashionably be noticed by their new uniforms which were provided by Eric Brown.David Morrison is the proud music teacher at Dillard Elementary.

Impact Girls Club

We had the honor of presenting the donation of 60 nook books for the students of Dillard at the Impact Girl’s Spring Gala and Awards dinner. In addition to the donation, Victoria Ranger was presented with the A+ Sponsor award recognizing her for the IMPACT she is making in the school. Ranger Good works is extremely proud of Ms. Angela Dix and her ability to empower the lives of such young girls. As our bond with Dillard grows, we look forward to watching each one of them transform into beautiful butterflies!

Donations

Ranger Good Works helped supply a store with no price tags where they can receive school supplies, clothes, shoes, hygiene products and more. The store is located directly on campus to assist their students when something unexpected comes up. A Big thank you goes out to all of the donations made to the Dillard store.

Dillard Kids

College Tour Program

With a successful community partnership with Paradise Education Foundation and Paradise Bank, we helped fund the college tour program. Dillard’s students had a chance to walk through academic, residential, athletic and administrative buildings and meet with faculty to discuss college programs. Our partnership with PEF goes beyond the college tour program. PEF provides Ranger Good Works an account to manage the donations and funding for all of Dillard’s programs and needs. Also, with the help of Aliant payment systems we are able to receive credit card donations right from our website. Make a donation today!

Literacy Night – October 2013

Ranger Good Works helped facilitate over 800 book donations which supported numerous families with literacy concerns. This program provided plenty of books for the children and their parents use and build an in home library. As a result, FCAT reading scores are up by 23% in the third grade. We also heard that all of the scores are increasing tremendously! We continued this program with a surprise book donation from Pine Crest School which augmented hundreds more of slightly used books to fill a section of Dillard’s school library.
