Tanger Outlets in Jeffersonville announced recently that five programs in Fayette County and one in Delaware County were named as this year’s recipients of a TangerKIDS Grant.

In keeping with Tanger Outlets’ mission to support the future of our children, the TangerKIDS Grants program is designed to award grant money to local schools in the communities where Tanger Outlet Centers are located. Grants awarded this month will benefit schools for the 2017-2018 school year.

This year’s recipients in Fayette County were: Miami Trace Middle School, which received $600; Miami Trace Middle School, which received $825; Miami Trace High School, which received $1,000; Fayette Christian School, which received $400; and Washington Middle School, which received $1,600.

This year’s recipient in Delaware County was Cheshire Elementary School, which received $548.38

“A substantial part of our mission at Tanger Outlets is to contribute positively to the communities in which we operate,” said Steven B. Tanger, president and chief executive officer of Tanger Outlets. “A high quality education is instrumental to enhancing our communities and we are proud to once again give back to these remarkable schools as part of our efforts to support students and educators across the country.”

For every coupon book sold, Tanger will give one dollar to the TangerKIDS Grants program which is designed to assist schools in Tanger Outlets’ primary markets by providing grants for special projects, needed programs or equipment.

Grants can also support groups within schools of all grade levels from kindergarten to grade 12. These grants are offered to multiple schools at each of Tanger’s 39 centers in the United States.

Since the company’s founding, Tanger Outlets has dedicated efforts to assist students in local communities from pre-school through high school by raising money that is used to purchase books and supplies, computers and new technology, athletic and playground equipment, and to fund reading programs and educational field trips. To date, Tanger Outlets has raised and donated in excess of one million dollars to help children and schools succeed.
