Really Good Stuff, a subsidiary of Excelligence Learning Corporation, a leading provider of educational tools and solutions to early childhood and elementary teachers and parents, closed out its 25th anniversary celebration by traveling to Grants Pass, Oregon to award the Grand Prize in its Summer of Fun Giveaway to Mollie Bleeker, a Pre-K grade teacher at Vineyard Christian School.
The Monroe, CT-based Company celebrated twenty-five years of providing teachers with innovative solutions designed to make a difference in the classroom with its Summer of Fun Instant Giveaway! Over 10,000 prizes were awarded to the over 50,000 unique players who redeemed giveaway codes throughout the summer. The fun culminated when Tim Kochuba, Really Good Stuff’s President, traveled to Grants Pass, Oregon to award the grand prize which consisted of a $1,500 Visa®Gift Card for Mollie PLUS $3,000 worth of Really Good Stuff® for both Mollie’s classroom and her school.
From the beginning, the company’s mission has been to help teachers make a difference in the classroom. Starting in 2008, Really Good Stuff has also worked to make a difference beyond the classroom by reducing its carbon footprint. The company installed solar panels and energy efficient lighting at its main headquarters, instituted a company-wide recycling policy, and uses sustainable resources when possible.
Other highlights in Really Good Stuff’s 25-year history include the establishment of a District and School Administrator unit in 2012, offering products in bulk and customizing packages to supply entire schools or districts. It joined the Excelligence family of companies in early 2016.
Dipak Golechha, Excelligence Learning Corp. CEO, said, “We’re fortunate to have joined forces with Really Good Stuff at such a momentous time in its history. With the combined resources of our Supplies Division and our shared dedication to innovation and customer satisfaction, I look forward with enthusiasm to what the next 25 years will bring.”
Kochuba noted, “We initiated the Summer of Fun Giveaway as a way to say ‘thank you’ to the tens of thousands of amazing teachers nationwide that helped Really Good Stuff achieve this important milestone. At Really Good Stuff, we know that teachers often reach into their own pockets to acquire classroom essentials, and we wanted to show our appreciation by giving back in a fun and creative way.”
