Helping Our Community: Hixson and St. Francis de Sales School

Contributing creatively to the communities in which we live and work is one of Hixson’s core values. In keeping with that commitment, Hixson has been a long-time partner with St. Francis de Sales School, located in Cincinnati’s Walnut Hills neighborhood.

Hixson is involved with several programs aimed at various grade levels at St. Francis. One of the largest programs is the Pen Pal program, in which approximately 25 Hixson associates are matched with a second grader at St. Francis and write letters throughout the school year with their pals. The program concludes at the end of the year with a pizza party for all of the participants.

In the Travelling Bears program, first-grade students are each given a special bear that they name. The bears are then sent on journeys to places far and wide, and write back (with help from Hixson associates) on postcards to their students throughout the school year from the places they visit before ultimately being re-united with their owners.
