AKZ seeks to break the cycle of poverty by focusing on the next generation with educational and social support structures that provide opportunities for kids that are disadvantaged in Henderson. Gibbs cares about a local community and supports organizations that work to improve the lives of our Team Members and their families. As part of their programming, AKZ hosted a series of Thursday night events open to the community. One of these nights was a STEM celebration night where the AKZ kids showed off their STEM projects they had been working on throughout the summer.
Gibbs sponsored this night with pizza and demonstrations of STEM experiments including rockets, magnetism, and showing some of the STEM jobs that our Team Members do at Gibbs every day. Gibbs will continue our partnership with AKZ through various activities throughout the year.
