RHP Properties Partners with AdoptAClassroom.org to Support Local School in Colorado

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – Feb. 11, 2021 – RHP Properties, the nation’s largest private owner and operator of manufactured home communities, has announced a $10,000 donation to support a Colorado school through AdoptAClassroom.org. AdoptAClassroom.org is a national nonprofit that provides funding for U.S. PreK-12 teachers and schools to purchase materials and tools for their students to learn and succeed.

AdoptAClassroom.org provides teachers and school administrators with an online fundraising platform, plus a private ecommerce marketplace of nearly 30 school supply and school specialty vendors. Through its marketplace, teachers and school administrators can use donations to select exactly what they need for their classrooms and students.

RHP Properties is adopting Dupont Elementary School, located in Commerce City, CO. The school serves approximately 300 children from Wikiup, Shady Lane, Commerce Heights and Pine Lakes Ranch, nearby RHP Properties manufactured home communities.

"Dupont is thrilled to be adopted by RHP Properties. With all of the changes in what school looks like this year, our teachers' classroom needs -- both virtually and in-person -- have changed in ways we hadn't thought of before,” said Principal Brian Clark. “With this sponsorship, our teachers will be better able to meet those classroom needs. Thank you."

“The coronavirus pandemic has increased the already critical need for school supplies and we are proud to provide assistance,” said Ross Partrich, CEO, RHP Properties.

“We chose to adopt Dupont Elementary to help support the many students who attend there from our nearby manufactured home communities, as well as many students throughout the Commerce City area.”

“This school year, teachers are spending more of their own money on school materials than ever before to provide their students with basic school supplies, PPE and safety equipment, and distance learning materials,” said AdoptAClassroom.org’s Executive Director Ann Pifer. “Teachers are facing so many challenges during COVID-19 - not having the resources they need to teach shouldn’t be one of them. Donors such as RHP Properties help ease the burden for teachers.”
