Incentive & Essentials Donations

With the new year, Pando has several local organizations and businesses to thank for their donations to our Incentive & Essentials Drive. Pando staff were overwhelmed with the amount of items donated this year, and were excited to choose items to take back to their school for students and families!

Items donated included:

Toys, art supplies, board games, water bottles, sports equipment, and science kits

Mittens, hats, coats, shampoo, body wash, deodorant and hair care supplies


The Pando Incentive program was developed to empower and encourage students to reach their greatest potential for academic achievement, behavioral control, and personal growth by positively reinforcing their efforts to reach their goals. Students set goals, discuss incentives, and then work towards meeting those goals. Once goals are met, students receive the incentive.

Pando also supplies basic needs to students and families.

These essential items can include deodorant, hair care, clothing and outerwear, other hygiene items, and more.

Thank you to Plymouth Congregational Church, United Teachers of Wichita, McCownGordon Construction, Emprise Bank, and many other individuals for your donations!
