Thank You La-Z-Boy

Each year, the La-Z-Boy Foundation makes a generous donation to the Neosho School District Charitable Foundation’s Learning Enrichment Grant Program. During the 2021-2022 school year the La-Z-Boy Foundation, along with the NSD Foundation, awarded over $39,000.00 in Learning Enrichment Grants to staff of the Neosho School District. The  La-Z-Boy Foundation, through its employees at the local facility here in Neosho, always reinvests in this community and we are just one example.  Thank you La-Z-Boy Foundation, La-Z-Boy Midwest, and La-Z-Boy employees for always being present in funding our missions
