Tanger Outlets awards TangerKIDS grants in Sussex County
Tanger Outlets in Rehoboth Beach announces three individual schools in Sussex County as this year’s recipients of a TangerKIDS grant. In keeping with Tanger Outlets’ mission to support the future of children, the TangerKIDS Grants program is designed to award grant money to local schools in the communities where Tanger Outlet Centers are located. Grants awarded this month will benefit schools for the 2014-15 school years.
This year’s recipients in Sussex County are Millsboro Middle School, Sussex Consortium and Cape Henlopen High School.
For every Tanger coupon book sold, Tanger earmarked $1 for the TangerKIDS Grants program. Funding for TangerKIDS Grants in Rehoboth Beach totaled $5,000 and was split among multiple grant requests.
“The entire Tanger organization strongly believes that supporting children’s education is an investment in their future and we, as a company, are dedicated to doing everything we can to contribute in a meaningful way,” said Steven B. Tanger, president and CEO. “We are proud to once again give back to these remarkable schools in Sussex County and look forward to continuing our efforts to support our children.”
The TangerKIDS Grants program is designed to assist schools in Tanger Outlets’ primary markets by providing grants for special projects, needed programs or equipment. Grants can also support groups within schools of all grade levels from Pre-K to grade 12. These grants are offered to multiple schools at each of Tanger’s 39 centers in the United States.
To date, Tanger Outlets has raised and donated in excess of $1.7 million to help children and schools succeed.
