A Gift For Teaching, the primary provider of free school supplies to students in need all year long, is kicking off Central Florida’s largest school supply drive at its Free Store during the first day of shopping, where teachers shop for FREE supplies.

Last year, lines were out the door with more than 300 teachers waiting to get prepared for the school year.

AGFT will ask the community to think of the students in need as they shop for school supplies during tax-free week, August 5th – 7th. Members of the community can get involved in the Back-to-School Drive campaign by donating supplies or making financial gifts to the organization through September 16th.

For every $1 received, A Gift For Teaching can provide up to $10 worth of school supplies that go back into the classroom and into the hands of students in need, and with generous matching funds from The Bond Foundation, we can turn that $10 into $20.

The nonprofit organization is the official school supply partner of Central Florida’s school districts and annually serves more than 14,000 teachers and more than 210,000 students in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. AGFT accepts donations year-round to make sure our shelves are always stocked.

WHEN: Friday, August 5th
8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

WHERE: A Gift For Teaching
6501 Magic Way, Bldg. 400C
Orlando, FL 32809
