The coronavirus pandemic has affected the vulnerable in our community, including students. According to the Broward Education Foundation, more than 90% of students in Broward’s top 40 Title I elementary schools are enrolled in free and reduced lunch programs. That’s why the charitable organization—the only one dedicated to serving students and teachers in Broward County Public Schools—is hosting a virtual Back-to-School drive.
The drive aims to provide safely sealed individual 18-piece basic school supply kits for students who attend 112 Title I elementary schools in Broward County.
“Broward Education Foundation is proven agile, adept and responsive to shifting needs in education and our community,” says Tim Curtin, board chair of Broward Education Foundation. “We’ve had to completely reconfigure this annual campaign for maximum safety, and have made it seamless for anyone to sponsor an individual student, a class or an entire school. A gift of just $10 safely equips one student for success.”
The campaign runs through Aug. 21. To donate, click here.
