811 joined our team in 2016 and has been instrumental with adding more resources for the program. With their contributions, we have been able to add more locations for the program and invite more kids to a variety of events. As a special treat, student members now receive 811 backpacks at Fuel for Success events that they can continue to use at school and in the community.
Kids enjoy racing in the simulator and also participate in the US Government-backed Summer Meals program that helps to combat food insecurity in the community. 811 has helped us bring this to life by providing the interactive driving simulators for student members to enjoy.
811 has the critical responsibility of educating us on the importance of safe digging when doing yard work, home improvement, and more. We have incorporated digging safety within some of the network communities to help reinforce this message. To further activate this message, we are hosting an art contest where a winning school will receive a playground upgrade, Fuel for Success style and with safe digging always in mind.
The 811 team has been an example for other organizations to follow as an exemplary company giving back to communities across the United States. We look forward to a long relationship with 811 to continue to give the youth in various communities the Fuel For Success!
