School Supply Drive with A Gift for Teaching

Our Community Project is back for a second year  -- partnering with a Gift for Teaching!  Join us for a fun evening of giving back to the Orlando Community.  We are collecting supplies for teachers to use in their classrooms.  See the list below for supplies needed and bring with you to the annual meeting (you can also ship supplies).  We will spend an evening at the Hyatt Regency packaging the supplies collected to distribute to teachers across Florida.  

A Gift for Teaching is Central Florida’s primary provider of free school supplies.

MISSION:   To improve public school education by providing resources and surplus materials free to teachers for their students in need.

Today, A Gift For Teaching serves 338 public schools. There are more than 210,000 kids whose families live at or below the poverty line. But the most shocking number is that 13,000 of those students are homeless.

Picture a child at school trying to write without a pencil, read without books or dream without the tools to put their ideas onto paper. This is the reality for far too many students in our community.  For thousands, these basic learning tools are a luxury.  In fact, more than 65% of the students in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties come from families that can’t afford lunch, let alone school supplies.

Moved by this need and the fact that teachers, on average, spend $500 – $1,000 out of their own pockets each year to provide basic supplies for their students, philanthropist and nonprofit professional, Gary Landwirth, founded A Gift For Teaching (AGFT) in 1998.
