Potential Societal Impact: ROI Per Child

Economic Impact

  • In contrast, the average lifetime societal burden is $2.1M for each high school dropout who enters a life of crime and drugs
  • For every child, this represents an ROI of $4.5M to $107,100 invested over 17 year period
  • The compounding effect of generations to come yields even higher returns

Everything Grows from Goodness

By The Hand Club For Kids is honored to recognized KeHE Distributors/KeHE Cares Foundation as our featured partner. Goodness is at the root of everything they do. So, when KeHE partnered with By The Hand to inspire our students, they were “all in.”

For example, KeHE and By The Hand piloted an employee service day for the HR team, led by Jenn Ricks, during their annual leadership retreat. The HR leadership team volunteered during By The Hand’s programming, participating in enrichment activities alongside staff and students. Over 400 students were impacted.

Here’s another example of growing goodness. The KeHE supply chain team just completed their first ever 9-week partnership with By The Hand at our Moving Everest campus on the west side of Chicago. Specifically, Dave Bogertman, Senior Director of Supply Chain Development partnered with Peter Hanson, By The Hand Vice President of Volunteer Development to create “The Power Of One Team” enrichment. This series engaged our 4th graders, teaching them about supply chain and the business of KeHE while emphasizing the values of teamwork, empathy, communication, and flexibility.

There were 84 KeHE employees that volunteered to spend time with our students. Dozens of 4th graders were impacted by this enrichment. One volunteer shared, “The students are very enthusiastic about you being there & they ask a lot of good questions about our business. What you get in return as a volunteer turns out to benefit you as well. It’s an opportunity for team building with your peers/coworkers and you even get to tap into your creative side and have a little fun while you are there.”

KeHE believes when support each other, when we give back to our communities, and when we work to make the world a better place, we are creating fertile ground for growth and prosperity. More goodness = more growth.

By The Hand totally agrees. Thank you KeHE!
