Gearing up for SUMS refurb...

This week in global logsitics we have been gearing up for our SUMS (Students Using Math and Science) refurbishing process.  We have been labeling the horizontal carrousel and filling it with supplies.  We have also been repackaging books for Firstbook.  We have multiple gaylord boxes in our inventory that we must repackage so they are ready for shipment when our invoices start coming in. 

We will begin picking up the SUMS kits on friday from our local elementary schools!

Target & Firstbook paired up to distribut 1 million childrens books across the USA

This week the Global Logistics classes have been distributing children's books to Columbia County's title 1 elementary schools.  We received 2,600 books to give away.  The students are really enjoying being able to give back to our community.  When visiting Summers Elementary School, four team members from Target joined us!  We were able to go into a classroom and read a story to the class as they followed along with us in their own book.  Below are some pictures from our visit.
