Geico is showing up for West Ada Community Schools in a big way! Madison Farrell and Nathan Bude, employees of Geico, are partnering specifically with Peregrine Elementary Community School. Madison and her Geico team participated in our Diaper Drive and even came to help with the loading and unloading! They have provided snacks for our students, attended the Trunk or Treat with loads of candy, and came with coffee and donuts to our STEM night. Currently the Geico Local office is running a coat drive for our Community Schools to benefit any student in West Ada. We are grateful for the Geico team for all they do for our community. Thank you!

We ask that families and students stay safe, rest, relax and enjoy one another's company, read a good book and get outside to play and sled if it is safe to do so.
