Annual Pen Pal Pizza Party

Hixson is a long-time corporate partner of St. Francis de Sales school in Walnut Hills. Serving approximately 230 children, St. Francis, a member school of the Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund (CISE), provides a strong, faith-based education to inner city youth regardless of religious affiliation or ability to pay.   For the 2018-2019 school year, 19 Hixson associates paired up with students from the school’s second-grade class and wrote letters to each other throughout the year. The program provides a critical way for students to work on reading and penmanship outside of usual assignments, and also gives them something to look forward to as letters usually arrive with candy treats, coloring sheets and other fun goodies.   The culmination of the program is a pizza party where the pals get to meet each other and share their plans for the summer.
