Tarps Plus started its massive campaign for schools called canopies for kids last Friday. The California-based tarp company donated a 30 x 30′ white canvas tarp and a 10′ x 10′ white pop-up tent. The tarp company arrived in their truck would paint supplies and employees to help the children paint the tent and tarp that they would eventually donate.
Tarps Plus CEO and founder Michael Stein says, “We are excited to expand the Canopies for Kids program. We have the extra canvas tarps in stock to donate and we are more than glad to do it.”
Tarps Plus retail store manager Steve Benson was one of the employees to go and assist the children in painting the tarps and tent. “We had a blast painting the tarp and pop up tent with the kids and look forward to doing more these functions this year,” Benson said.
The Palmdale city mayor James C. Ledford Jr has been speaking with Tarps Plus and is trying to find a way to expand the program to every school in the antelope Valley area.
