Our Local Impact:
In 2020, Promotional Partners launched our Give Back Program, which kicked off by selling budget-friendly and versatile products. This program was a collaborative effort with the Safe Kids organization as with every purchase of these products, we made a donation to Safe Kids Wake County. During this time of celebration for Apex's 150 years, we wanted to make sure to shed light on this amazing organization that has brought us so much joy and enlightenment, with the hopes of showcasing the wonderful things the Safe Kids organization has done for our community.
The donations from these purchases were put towards Safe Kids Wake County’s efforts in calling attention to the problem through media and public awareness activities, advocating for improvements and enhanced safety legislation and enforcement, providing educational programs for children and families, and finally, distributing lifesaving safety devices to families in need!
We are proud to say that these donations went towards protecting children and spreading educational messages that prevent any future unintentional child death!
