On Tuesday, January 10, Kids In Need Foundation lost a great friend in John Carlberg, who passed away unexpectedly. John was the President and CEO of Dixon Ticonderoga Company and a longtime supporter of students, teachers, and Kids In Need Foundation.
Under John’s leadership, Dixon Ticonderoga has donated more than $5 million worth of essential school supplies to Kids In Need Foundation since 2019. John’s wife is a retired teacher and is graciously carrying on his legacy by directing all memorial donations made in John’s honor to support Kids In Need Foundation's mission.
We mourn John’s passing, extend our deepest sympathies to his family and friends, as well as everyone at Dixon Ticonderoga. We are grateful to everyone who contributes to Kids In Need Foundation in his memory.
