RPP Containers marks 25th anniversary with a $250,000 donation to student education in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Cincinnati, Ohio, February 7, 2023 – RPP Containers®, a leading custom manufacturer, stocking distributor, and recycler of reusable plastic bulk containers, is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a $250,000 donation for the education of over 1,000 students in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Over the past few years, RPP has been working with the Society of Jesus-East Africa and the Jesuit Refugee Service-Eastern Africa to identify and pay the school fees for the neediest students in several different countries. This year, its 25th anniversary year, RPP has committed to paying the school fees for over 1,000 students that attend primary and secondary schools, in 28 different schools, in 10 different African countries.
These Jesuit schools provide the students with not only a top-tier education but also one to two meals per day and a path for future advancement out of poverty.
Scott DeNoma, the Chairman and Co-Founder of RPP Containers, put it this way, “Once you know how inexpensive it is to provide a student a year of education (average $250), and the huge importance it is for these young individuals, it’s very difficult to ignore,” he said. “We know that God has blessed RPP tremendously over the years, and it is only fitting that we share these blessings with those less fortunate who could use our help.”
