Naples, FL (PRWEB) December 12, 2016
Fiddler’s Creek residents recently donated more than 800 back-to-school items for students starting the new year at Manatee Elementary School.
“Once again, we are in awe of the generosity of the Fiddler’s Creek community,” said Manatee Elementary Principal Wendy Borowski. “Through the donations of Fiddler’s Creek residents, we have been able to help so many students and families who otherwise might not have the materials they need to help them transition to the new school year smoothly.”
Fiddler’s Creek residents Chris Connors, George Rogers and Al Tetta – along with the membership and activities team from The Club & Spa at Fiddler’s Creek – delivered 69 backpacks, 60 pairs of shoes, 156 notebooks, 49 composition books, 47 binders, 42 lunch boxes and enough school essentials to check off the supply lists for dozens of students.
“For more than 20 years, we look forward to the school year as much as the students and are happy to encourage their success,” Rogers said. “After talking with Wendy and hearing about “additional students’ needs, we plan to hold a New Year, New Shoes and Backpacks drive in January with the goal of finishing the school year refreshed and focused.”
The annual school supply drive at Fiddler’s Creek started several years ago after a resident learned many students started the school year without shoes. Just this year, donations doubled when residents learned about a little boy who was concerned about returning to school because he didn’t think his parents would have money to buy him supplies. An assistant principal – with Fiddler’s Creek in mind – assured the boy his needs would be met, changing his entire attitude about the new school year.
