Helping School Children this Holiday Season

Through one of our various business partnerships aimed at helping local business owners, Google has given us a holiday gift this year. Rather than send us little mouse pads and pens with the Google logo, this year they've sent us something far cooler.

It's through an organization called where we'll be able to support a public school classroom of our choice. We can give books, art supplies, technology, field trips, or other resources to students in low-income communities.

As the largest online network of local business owners in the nation, who better to ask about local, then the local businesses that make up a community? That's why we're turning to you to ask for your recommendations. Please recommend schools that you know are in financial need or have had to shut down various school programs.

As a MerchantCircle network of over 300,000 members, let's give a great holiday gift this season to some deserving students in a deserving community.

  1. Hi, that is great!
    I just heard that because of a new Law, the Schools cant have vending machines anymore and that is taking away some helpful money that helped the Schools. I heard also that the School
    "Franklin Middle School" in Springfield IL would be a good candidate for thisprogram to get some help that they are needing.
    Keep up the good work Google and MerchantCircle team. God bless you and yours! Happy Holidays!
