Franklin Templeton Investments Volunteer with Jumpstart

June 13, 2018 (SAN MATEO) — Franklin Templeton Investments, a national partner of Jumpstart’s Read for the Record® campaign, recently celebrated its “Involved Week” by volunteering with Jumpstart. Ninety volunteers from the organization’s San Mateo office joined Jumpstart’s National Board Chair, Greg Johnson, and local Jumpstart staff for a day of building literacy kits. The volunteers created laminated and velcro alphabet and number sets for Jumpstart volunteers to use in local classrooms this fall, as well as “Dream Books” to be paired with Sesame Workshop books that were provided by a generous donation from Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation.

We appreciate Franklin Templeton Investment’s partnership and all the staff who volunteered to support Jumpstart’s program and the community we serve.
