NANBPWC Members Deliver School Supplies

Special to The Truth


The members of National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women's Clubs, Inc. (NANBPWC)- Toledo Club, Education Committee, believe that no child should be left behind and that educational assistance is a must in helping students focus on classes. If a student does not have the educational tools to work with, then many opportunities to learn will be missed.  


Therefore, the NANBPWC, Inc Toledo Club Education Committee delivered school supplies to the students of Keyser Elementary School on Tuesday, September 9, 2019.   


The Education Committee is devoted to implementing an array of activities to help students achieve in many ways such as: scholarships, providing etiquette classes, leadership techniques, technology for social media, physical fitness and health, safe encounters program with the police and so much more. Toledo Club member Denise Cardwell has taught etiquette classes to girls at Stewart Academy, Cotillion Débutantes, Deb's in Waiting, as well as many others.  



Wilma Brown, educational chairman, Karen Jarrett and Denise Cardwell, co-chairs, and committee members, hold weekly workshop sessions with the Toledo area junior and senior students who participate in the Debutante Cotillion Scholarship program  each Wednesday from January to May  at Keyser Elementary School.  


The members of the Education Committee network with members from Phi Delta Kappa,  YWCA, Books 4 Buddies, TLOD, the University of Toledo, various TPS schools, NANBPWC Maumee Bay Club and so many other service and community organizations. The committee has also collected belts to donate each year to elementary boys to prevent them from having sagging pants. 


The Toledo Club of NANBPWC would like to thank TPS Principal Natasha Allen and Assistant Principal Jason Duris for supporting the NANBPWC, INC.-Toledo Club.


Allen stated that, "We appreciate the support of NANBPWC and the donations of school supplies for her students." 

Allen said Keyser is committed to academic excellence. The staff, Keyser family and students work hard toward focusing on educational, personal and social goals. Parents are strongly encouraged to become involved in the school.  When parents attend school, they demonstrate to other children that they value school and education. Attending events like Open House, Math Nights, Parent Teacher Conference, and PTO meetings are all important ways that parents learn about what goes on in school. 


Volunteers (like NANBPWC ) are important examples of shared responsibilities. There are many opportunities for volunteers, whether it's the classrooms, participating in PTO activities,  helping in the library or chaperoning field trip. 


Parents can also learn about these opportunities through school newsletters, PTO and fliers. 


The National Program focuses on making our communities aware of ways we help through  the (LET'S) program initiative.

Toledo Club President Frances Collins, PhD, and First Vice President and Program Chair Denise Black-Poon delivered the club's donation of school supplies. Black-Poon noted that sometimes children will perform better and have higher expectations in life if they receive the proper guidance from the community, individual help, and family. Proper school supplies, books and financial support are needed to build the foundation, and spending time with each child to challenge their minds makes it fun and excites their imaginations. 

Black-Poon also stated that the Toledo Club supports education from elementary to college years through donations, scholarships, and workshops.
