Thousands of donated supplies headed to Manatee schools
On Friday, volunteers from several district departments spent a couple hours sorting and packing thousands of donated school supplies.
Next week, boxes of crayons, markers, paper, folders, backpacks, and more, are headed for elementary, middle and high schools which need them.
Employees from federal programs & grants; communications; and curriculum departments, lent a hand to sort bags and boxes filled with various items.
The donations were collected during a couple recent school supply drives held by our community partners: ABC 7 and Carl Reynolds Law, as well as Wal-Mart and Gettel Toyota.
Other local businesses such as: Bradenton Marauders, Cox Chevrolet and Urgent Dental Care, gave donations, too.
All monetary donations go to the Manatee Education Foundation, which will directly benefit Manatee County’s schools.
We’re grateful for the generosity of our community and their support of our students and schools!
