What: ContinuED School Supply Drive
Presented by: Young Friends of 90.7 WMFE
In partnership with: A Gift For Teaching
Collection dates: Ongoing

Young Friends of 90.7 WMFE invites you to participate in our school supply drive to provide vital supplies to students in need throughout the school year. We have partnered with A Gift For Teaching, which has distributed nearly $108 million worth of supplies to more than 300 schools since 1998.

More than 65% (213,000) of students in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties come from homes that cannot afford school supplies, and over 13,000 of them are homeless, according to A Gift For Teaching.

And the need for supplies doesn’t cease after the school year begins. That’s why our drive won’t stop in August – we will continue throughout the school year, collecting at WMFE’s studio, at community events and through community partners throughout Central Florida.
