Today Prent Janesville employees delivered toys, gifts, clothing and home essentials to nearly three dozen families at Wilson Elementary School and 93 Head Start children.

Gifts for Wilson School were provided by Prent and its employees, while the Head Start giving was done by both Prent and GOEX employees.

“Without the help of Prent, Christmas would not be possible for many of our Wilson kids,” says Ashley Norton, the school’s Student Services Specialist. “Day-in and day-out, our students face challenges that are unbelievable. We appreciated everything Prent does for our students. We started distributing the gifts today and the families are overjoyed.”

Prent has been the sponsor of both these Holiday giving programs for many years. According to Ron Steurer, Prent Director of Manufacturing, and one of the organizers of these annual events, “school staffs are amazed by the extraordinary generosity of Prent, GOEX and our employees. We were able to purchase so many gifts that it took three large vans plus an SUV to carry everything to the families!”
