Triad Incentives - Triad/Chamber/Chamber Members Working Together

The Triad School District has put together a unique professional development system for their 250 certified staff and faculty members. In this program, teachers have the option to sign up for courses led by instructional coaches, or they can choose their own adventure and research a strategy or tool of their own choice. Their next step is to use those new skills in their classroom. This program is helping Triad stay in the forefront of innovative educational practices.

Here's where you, as a Chamber member, come in. Once the teachers use their new skills professionally, the coaches in the district would like to reward them with coupons or gift cards or other donations of any kind from local businesses.

Whatever you end up donating, you will be able to use those credits to purchase things within the Chamber that actually cost you money – so it is win/win.  Credits will be based on what you provide so, for example, if you provide a $10 gift card and it is selected from one of the Triad staff, then you have a $10 Chamber credit!

Free Summer Lunch Program

Monday – Friday; June 4, 2018 – August 10, 2018
Pick-up from 11:30 – 12:30 pm at The Meadow Drive Park & Tri Township Library
View the Flyer
This program has become a great success and has helped so many families during the summer.  We have joined forces with a few churches in Troy during the past years, which has been wonderful, but it is time to ask others in our community for help.  Due to the overwhelming request for lunches during the summer we are in need of monetary & food items donations along with volunteers to help at one or both of the locations.  Please contact Monica at Friedens United Church of Christ if you would like to join in on our fight to stop hunger in our community.

Lunches are served form Monday – Friday.  On Friday we give weekend backpacks at the Meadow Drive Park location for the weekend.  3 people per location has seemed to work in the past.  Bagged lunched will need to be premade and ready for distribution at the location at 11:30am. If your business needs a location to make the lunches, you are more than welcome to you to use our kitchen for set up. The library is still allowing us to use the “green space” behind the building for distribution of the lunches.  Once we have a good number of helpers there will be a list of contacts and a schedule of days to follow.

(for bag lunches) small brown bags, sandwich bags, bottle water, bread, lunch meat, peanut butter, jelly, fruit snacks. – It’s pretty much a sandwich, a fruit, a sweet treat, a water and small snack)
(for Friday back packs) -Meadow Drive Park location only- peanut butter, Jelly, bread, cans of pasta (family size), box cereal, breakfast bars, fruit snacks.  On Friday’s we usually order from a fast food restaurant in Troy, so gift cards are a great way to help.

Triad has an exciting opportunity for you to assist with their Maker’s Program.  “A makerspace is a metaphor for a unique learning environment that encourages tinkering, play, and open-ended exploration for all.”  ~ Laura Fleming

Community members, below is a list of some of the larger items we are trying to secure for our district MakerSpaces. Though we are starting with C.A.

For any donation that is made by an individual or organization, we will include a donation plaque on the item to recognize our community members’ generosity. We look forward to working with you in building these amazing supports for our schools.

The Giving Project

Please consider donating to a new project at Triad High School called The Giving Project.
This project will consist of a service that we want to provide for any student facing a financial burden in our school to receive free gently-used clothing, toiletries, and or shoes/accessories. We plan to provide these resources to our students from donations that people may typically give away or sell.  We are also working in coordination with our Special Education Department to use this resource as a means for transition skills for students in our training for life skills program (i.e., laundering, folding, and sorting).

Please read more about The Giving Project and consider helping with this worthy cause.
