Our featured charity is A Gift for Teaching (http://www.agiftforteaching.org/ ). We will be collecting school supplies and monetary donations for this charity. A Gift for Teaching was started in 1998 to ensure that children in Central Florida have the basic tools for learning by transferring, at no cost, the community's surplus supplies and merchandise into the hands of teachers and school children in need. The schools participating are from the most impoverished areas, based on the percentage of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program. As more merchandise and funding become available, more schools will be invited to shop.
If you'd like to donate to this charity we have an online collection here:
