CH Robinson has announced that it recently donated over 500 bags of ready-to-eat, sliced fresh apples to the children of Pleasant Valley Elementary in Amarillo, Texas.
The group, which is the exclusive provider of Mott's fresh apples, made the donation in order to 'better prepare students for increased educational performance through the fuel of a nutritious snack'.
The Mott’s fresh apple slices provided the children, who may not have had access to convenient, fresh produce, with a nutritious snack to enjoy before the State of Texas’ Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) testing on 31 March and 17 April.
“We are so thankful that Mott’s has committed to supporting our school,” said Lisa Neese, principal at Pleasant Valley Elementary. “It means a great deal to us that these kids got to start their day with a healthy snack.”
“It’s our pleasure to provide the students at Pleasant Valley Elementary school with Mott’s fresh apple slices,” commented Drew Schwartzhoff, director of marketing at CH Robinson. “Slices are a convenient healthy way to start the day, for both children and adults alike.”
Mott’s fresh apples are offered year-round in stores across the US and aim to provide consumers with a convenient and healthy product merchandised under a brand that they trust.
