School Supply Drive
Young Friends of 90.7 WMFE invites you to participate in our year-round 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 more than $128 million worth of supplies directly into classrooms since 1998.
We have also partnered with Lisa Maile Seminars and Coaching to donate a carload of supplies to the winner of its teacher makeover contest.
More than 70% (200,000) of the students in Central Florida come from families that can’t afford lunch, let alone school supplies. Local teachers report spending an average of $520 a year of their own money on supplies so their students can be successful in school. A Gift For Teaching serves 287 public schools in Orange and Osceola counties through free stores.
And the need for supplies doesn’t cease after the school year begins. That’s why our drive doesn’t stop in August – it continues throughout the school year, collecting at WMFE’s studio and through community partners (list below) throughout Central Florida.
Here’s how you can support our community’s students and teachers:
1. Donate supplies.
You can drop off supplies in WMFE’s lobby, 11510 E. Colonial Drive, or at one of the following partner businesses:
** Please note: Due to COVID-19, some of these businesses may not be open to collect your supplies. Please call ahead or drop off directly to WMFE’s lobby. **
