IronMountain Solutions makes generous $500,000 donation for new Kids to Love education space
IronMountain Solutions CEO Hank Isenberg presented Kids to Love with a $500,000 donation to the Isenberg Center for Education and Innovation Thursday.
The Isenberg Center for Education and Innovation will be an expansive, contemporary facility used by both Kids to Love and KTECH, Kids to Love’s licensed private school for workforce training.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Kids to Love in support of this new training center, so we might enrich the kids in our community,” Isenberg said.
The multipurpose space also will serve as special venue space that will be utilized for KTECH graduations, foster parent training, organizational events and conferences.
“Our KTECH programs are growing,” said Kids to Love and KTECH founder Lee Marshall. “With the addition of Snap-on Tools certification and other programs, we need more space for our students to learn. The Isenberg Center for Education and Innovation will give us the space we need now for our students and allow us to expand KTECH’s offerings even further.
“We also are excited to be able to have space for events like foster parent training. Currently, we are operating in a space that has to serve multiple purposes throughout the year, and having this new space will allow us to have training and other events while keeping our current space configured for our school supply and Christmas gift programs.”
The Isenberg Center for Education and Innovation will be part of a building next to the Kids to Love Center on Castle Drive that will also house the Smith Family Wellness Center, in memory of Mark C. Smith, and the Curtis Cares Center.
Construction on the new facility is expected to begin before spring.
Isenberg has long been a supporter of Kids to Love and its programs, including generous donations to the Whitaker Cottage Community at Davidson Farms, Kids to Love’s home for girls.
