TIAA’s 5th Annual School Supply Drive

The students were very happy to receive the school supplies, we are very grateful to TIAA for this wonderful donation. Receiving a new backpack and school supplies can lift a child’s self-esteem because when a student has something new it makes them feel happy, comfortable, included, and motivated.Esthy Sanches, Longfellow Elementary Community Advocate

PEF is grateful to join forces with partners and give back to our community. To start the season of giving, employees from TIAA, TIAA bank, and nuveen™ donated more than 1,400 school supplies, and TIAA matched their gifts for a total of more than 2,800 items to students at Longfellow Elementary.

TIAA is driven by our nonprofit heritage, we are committed to having a positive impact on society an those who make a difference in the lives of others.Maria Khader-Karp, TIAA
