Help Local Students Feel Excited & Prepared To Learn!

It may be summer break, but the countdown is on to ensure the children in our community have the essential supplies they need by the first day of school.

More than 70% of schools are considered high-need in Central Florida, and thousands of students will arrive at class with nothing in their hands.

Together, we can help our students and teachers begin the new school year with success so learning can occur for all.
