Donor Partners

Meet our donors.
They are our partners and give more than just money.

Sharzer Associates, Inc. is an educational materials and consulting business providing support to teachers and administrators in the selection and ordering of academic supplements. The founder, Lois Sharzer, learned about Wellness in the Schools from her daughter Rebecca and immediately set out to give back. The Sharzer’s asked how they could help and from that day forward Lois and her family have funded a full-time chef and coach in a school; the Sharzer family has also introduced their large network of friends and colleagues to Wellness in the Schools. We had the privilege of honoring Lois and Sharzer Associates, Inc. at our annual fall dinner for her inspiration – Lois started a very successful business that still feels very grassroots and family-like, and where individual relationships still matter. She epitomizes that a healthy body equals a healthy mind, and she is easy to laugh and have fun.

A very special thank you to our core donors
