"Our team rallied together to support the Daniel Trust Foundation in their unwavering goal of empowering brilliant students in low-income communities," said Kaishon Holloway, Community Engagement and Events Lead at Indeed. "We identified an opportunity to give back in a B.I.G way by running a school supply drive to further support the academic pursuits of students in the Daniel Trust Foundation high school mentoring and college scholarship programs."
