A lot of parents can't afford the school supplies their children need, and it’s a privilege for us to support the Broward Education Foundation and help ensure the new school year gets off to a great start for every student in the county.
Deerfield Beach, Florida (PRWEB) August 14, 2015
From notebooks and pencils to backpacks and crayons, school supply collection boxes throughout the headquarter offices of People’s Trust Insurance are overflowing with donations for Broward County School students. Employees of the Florida homeowner’s insurance company have generously donated thousands of dollars in supplies for the 2015 Tools for Schools drive - a Broward Education Foundation campaign to get supplies into the hands of students in need throughout the Broward community in time for the start of the new school year.
To further support those contributions, People’s Trust is donating an additional $500 in supplies.
“A lot of parents can't afford the school supplies their children need, and it’s a privilege for us to support the Broward Education Foundation and help ensure the new school year gets off to a great start for every student in the County,” said Adam Hasner, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer.
In past years, Broward county teachers reached into their own wallets to purchase much-needed school supplies, but Tools for Schools and its partners are working to change that. Since starting the program in 2001, more than 20,000 teachers have received free supplies – totaling more than $6 million. These supplies are then passed along to the students, empowering and equipping them to learn.
