In 2013, more than 1000 people attended the Protective Life Food Truck Roundup, and helped raise over $76,000 for PreSchool Partners. PreSchool Partners is dedicated to preparing at-risk three and four-year-olds, and their parents, for kindergarten in the Birmingham City Schools. Students, who may not otherwise get a preschool education receive a solid educational foundation and are set on a path toward success. Making this year’s Protective Life Food Truck Roundup even more special is PreSchool Partners’ plans to launch Operation Schoolhouse, a $2.6 million capital campaign that will allow the previous successes of Preschool Partners to reach an even broader group of deserving families. Operation Schoolhouse which broke ground on March 12, 2014 and will be housed at Birmingham’s former McElwain Elementary School.
