DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / April 13, 2020 / Envela Corporation (NYSE American:ELA) ("Envela" or the "Company") announced today that it will donate all net proceeds from the sale of its new, custom-minted 10 oz silver bars to support COVID-19 relief efforts.
Funds raised will support the enormous challenge that school districts across the country now face in trying to provide remote learning to all students while their school buildings remain closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Many students lack computers or high-speed internet service at home, depriving them of access to learning opportunities. As COVID-19 compels changes to the way teaching is delivered, we are committed to supporting students and educators by helping them stay connected.
"While we all make our way through these challenging times, Envela wants to assist kids whose education has been disrupted by the pandemic," said John Loftus, Envela's Chairman and CEO. "We invite others to join our effort and together help children realize their long-term potential, benefitting kids long after we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis," added Loftus.
To nominate a school for this relief, simply contact us at [email protected] by 5:00 p.m. on April 30, 2020. Following the receipt of school nominations, schools will be asked to apply for the award. Funds not earmarked for specific schools will be donated to United to Learn, a 501(c)(3) educational service provider based in Dallas, Texas.
