Carlstadt, NJ — 2/3/2023: Keepsake Products is proud to announce that they have teamed up with the Mariano Rivera Foundation and their “SAVE 653” mentorship program. Keepsake is set to host an onsite training classroom along with an in-depth program to teach the community’s underserved high school students the fine art of Printing and Packaging.
The foundation was created by Hall of Fame pitcher Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees with a mission to create a reality where each child is afforded an opportunity to see beyond their circumstances and to discover new ways to make a better life for themselves confidently.
“We are very excited to have this opportunity with the foundation and its partners to reach out to our local community on behalf of the Promotional Products industry and help create a change in many of these kids’ lives. The on-hands training that the program provides each student is invaluable, and we are proud to provide the classroom, the expertise, and the equipment to help these kids understand the vast opportunities the Promotional Products industry has available to them,” said Andy Griffin, Managing Partner of Keepsake Products and Keepsake Box. “Our industry needs more of this; it just feels so good to give back and to make a difference, and we cannot wait to get the kids in here and get started,” Griffin added.
Luis Villa, with the Mariano Rivera Foundation, supported Griffin’s sentiment, “Students can walk straight from the classroom, across the hall and into the Keepsake Printing Facility and see the lessons they are learning happen right in front of them. No other facility can provide that type of experience.”
The program is slated to start in March 2023 and will provide a class size of 10 students and require each of them to pass a 360-hour Class/Lab certification process.
