Surya donates EMW scholarships on behalf of top customer accounts
December 24, 2013,
Rug and home décor manufacturer Surya made a donation on behalf of each of its top customer accounts to East Meets West, an international nonprofit development organization that serves communities in Asia.
Each donation from the Calhoun, Ga.-based manufacturer will provide an impoverished high school student a one-year scholarship that covers tuition, fees, books, supplies, transportation and regular intensive tutoring.
Overall, as part of the company's commitment to charitable giving, Surya is making it possible for 200 girls to attend high school through graduation and is providing a four-year college education for five students who would not otherwise be able to afford the costs of higher education.
EMW's SPELL Scholarship program has provided comprehensive high school scholarships to more than 11,000 high-achieving students at risk of dropping out of school due to poverty or social pressure, helping them to graduate and gain meaningful employment.
