A Gift for Teaching
“I would not be able to provide the supplies that are needed for my students to be successful without A Gift for Teaching. Thank you!” These words came from one of the many teachers we serve at A Gift for Teaching (AGFT) and reflect the thoughts of so many who shop at our Free Store.
Thank you and the Parrot Heads of Central Florida for investing in our community’s teachers and students by making a donation of $40, raised at your May Phlocking meeting, in support of A Gift for Teaching.
As the number of students in need in Central Florida continues to rise past 216,000, your support at this time is more critical than ever. In the aftermath of the 2017 hurricane season, Central Florida students and families find themselves in a number of unique and potentially devastating situations. Many have sustained damage to their homes and belongings in the wake of Hurricane Irma, and are unable to replace school supplies lost in the natural disaster. Hundreds, and potentially thousands of children and families are also relocating to Central Florida from Puerto Rico with nothing but the clothing on their backs after being displaced by Hurricane Maria.
A Gift for Teaching, Central Florida’s primary provider of free school supplies, is committed to helping affected families and new arrivals adjust to their new circumstances. Though we may not be able to repair their homes or replace objects of sentimental value, your support will help us make sure all of our new and returning students have the supplies they need to succeed!
On behalf of Central Florida’s teachers and students, we thank you for your generous commitment to A Gift for Teaching.
