From Education Foundation of Palm Beach County:

The Education Foundation of Palm Beach County believes that every child in Palm Beach County deserves equal opportunity and access to a quality education,. Teachers remain the key to unlocking a student's potential in the classroom as a steppingstone to the rest of their life.

The Need

  • Nearly 70% of students enrolled in the National School Lunch Program, receiving meals through school at a discount or for free. For these students, school supplies are a luxury. Many arrive at school without a single pencil or notebook, unable to participate in day-to-day lessons and activities.
  • $875 is the average amount teachers spend of their own to pay to purchase supplies for students that cannot afford them.

Why give the supplies to the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County?

  • By providing essential school supplies for teachers and students, you will create environments where teachers can focus on teaching and students focus on learning.
