ENGLEWOOD, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of an ongoing commitment to give back to the community, US Standard Products (USSP) is partnering with Business Professionals of America (BPA) to sponsor BPA’s 2015 National Leadership Conference (NLC) Day of Service on Thursday, May 7.
More than 6,500 students and educators from BPA chapters nationwide will gather in Anaheim, CA May 6-10 for four days of competition, leadership development, workshops, Torch Awards, National Officer elections, tours and the Day of Service.
In partnering with BPA to sponsor the day dedicated to community service, USSP helps support the challenge presented to students and educators: to complete at least 2,800 service activities throughout the day in an effort to make a difference and inspire fellow classmates and future generations on the importance of giving back. Day of Service activities offer students the opportunity to make an impact at both the local and national levels, while encouraging interaction with civic organizations, local area business leaders and others.
USSP is specifically sponsoring the United Nations World Food Programme (Freerice.com), whose main goals are to provide global access to free public education and end world hunger by donating rice to the hungry. The non-profit Freerice.com website is a fun and educational gaming site, in which every correct answer yields a donation of ten grains of rice.
US Standard Products is committed to doing their part to build an ever better world, equally focused on building a better company and giving back to the community. A percentage of sales is earmarked for charitable giving partners, including organizations that support U.S. troops, children and youth, and those struggling with disabilities. Supporting BPA helps the organization sustain cultures of educational advancement and gives the next generation of business professionals the motivation they need to pursue promising careers.
