Working to improve public education by ensuring that each child gets the supplies he or she needs, Orlando-based A Gift for Teaching has been working to bring tools to students in need since 1998. This year, Duke Realty got involved with a back-to-school supply drive.
The unfortunate facts are that more than 60 percent of the students in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties in Central Florida come from families that can’t afford lunch, let alone school supplies. A Gift for Teaching tries to keep teachers from doing what they so often do when faced with this need: reach into their own pockets to buy supplies for their students and classrooms.
Our Central Florida office pulled together to collect much-needed items to assist teachers and students.
