The Salesmanship Club of Dallas is a service organization of businessmen from the Dallas community that join together to raise funds and oversee the programming for Salesmanship Club Youth and Family Centers. We’re so proud that our CEO, Kip Tindell, has been deeply involved in this organization for many years. The Salesmanship Club created a model, laboratory school called the J. Erik Jonsson Community School more than 10 years ago that provides the highest quality education for at-risk children three years of age through 5th grade.
Since established, the J. Erik Jonsson Community School demonstrates that children from low-income homes can achieve outstanding educational outcomes. Last year, the exemplary school saw 96% of their children graduate from high school and 88% go on to college!
With the help of the Salesmanship Club, The Container Store outfitted 18 classrooms with our favorite product – elfa! On Friday, school was in session so we were able to meet the wonderful children and teachers who attend the school. Their bright eyed, positive spirits made us even more excited to be contributing to the creation of a positive learning environment with well-organized and easy-to-access classrooms! Thank you to the Salesmanship Club and all of our fabulous employees who helped make this donation and installation possible.
