Volunteer to be Pen Pals with
Local Elementary Students
ocateSmarter, an ACA International
member company in Cedar Falls,
Iowa, participated in a pen pal
program with local elementary students
throughout the 2017/18 academic school
year through Partners in Education. All of
the company's employees in Cedar Falls
participated in the program.
LocateSmarter staff exchanged several
handwritten letters with their 4th grade
pen pals from September 2017 to May
2018, helping the students practice their
handwriting, spelling and grammar.
"I feel very fortunate to participate in
this youth development activity," said
LocateSmarter Director of Strategic Alliances
Brandon Medlin. "It takes a village helping
our kids build the skills they need for their
future. It's a simple task to exchange letters,
but the impact is far greater."
On May 17, LocateSmarter employees had
the opportunity to meet their pen pals during
a pizza party and an extended recess at the
students' elementary school. LocateSmarter
employees and their pen pals played tag,
kickball and various other activities.
"While we got to know our pen pals
over the course of several months through
letters, it was great to finally meet them
in person," said Product Manager Tyler
Benson. "You quickly got the sense that
we were making a genuine impact on
their day and you simply can't put a
value on that. It's a great program with
a great purpose and I look forward to
Manager of Marketing & Communications Lindsey Newcomb
meets some of LocateSmarter's pen pals.
