Kids-Lift Spotlight

Kids-Lift is Premium Service Brands’ community partnership program. Kids-Lift provides the logistical support for Premium Service Brands franchise owners who want to give back. At Kids-Lift, we believe that every child deserves the opportunity to reach higher and achieve greater in school and beyond. Through relationships with local schools and organizations, Premium Service Brands franchise owners and corporate staff provide children with the materials they need to succeed. We are dedicated to local communities because we believe that investing in children is the key to our future.

Premium Service Brands franchises have partnered with Kids-Lift in over ten cities across the country — collectively Kids-Lift and Premium Service Brands franchise owners have fed hundreds of students and their families. Our initiatives serve at-risk families with multiple food drives throughout the year to help ensure children have access to the healthy meals they need to thrive. At the beginning of each school year, Kids-Lift provides backpacks filled with school supplies to children that live below the poverty line so that they can succeed. We plan to continue this tradition in the coming years and are proud of how our school-supply drive has grown since Kids-Lift’s inception in 2018.

In 2019, the International Franchising Association awarded Kids-Lift the 2019 Newcomer Prize award for its unique charitable contributions. The award specifically noted the creative and sustainable ways that Kids-Lift supports childhood education by first addressing childhood nutrition. The connection between nutrition and educational achievement has been demonstrated in various ways — Kids-Lift is fundamentally an educational 501 (C) 3 that supports local schools through nutritional support.

Recent challenges in 2020 due to the pandemic demonstrated the importance of giving back more than ever before. With greater numbers of children becoming food insecure because of mass layoffs and school closures, Kids-Lift still found ways to collect and donate food to alleviate hunger. Over the course of eight virtual food drives, Kids-Lift collected over 2000 meals for children in need. Because of generous donations from members of the community and corporate partners, we were able to help combat child hunger and help hundreds of families during the unprecedented Covid-19 Pandemic.

We believe that giving children the boost they need to succeed strengthens our community and future. Get involved with Kids-Lift by signing up for our newsletter here.
