Join us for another edition of Do Good Date Night on Wednesday, August 28 when we partner with A Gift For Teaching for a special back-to-school edition. We'll spend about two hours sorting school supplies with food catered and non-alcoholic beverages supplied.
A Gift For Teaching serves 287 public schools in Orange and Osceola counties. There are more than 240,000 kids whose families live at or below the poverty line in Central Florida, but the most shocking number is that 17,000 of those students are homeless.
Picture a child at school trying to write without a pencil, read without books or dream without the tools to put their ideas onto paper. This is the reality for far too many students in our community. For thousands, these basic learning tools are a luxury. In fact, more than 70% of the students in Central Florida come from families that can’t afford lunch, let alone school supplies.
Moved by this need and the fact that teachers, on average, spend $500 – $1,000 out of their own pockets each year to provide basic supplies for their students, philanthropist and nonprofit professional, Gary Landwirth, founded A Gift For Teaching (AGFT) in 1998.
