With a plan in place now for school to resume in Osceola County this year, many students need your help now more than ever as they will be returning to school with no supplies to do their work. You can help the Education Foundation of Osceola County prepare for the 2020-21 school year by participating in its 2020 Virtual Supply Drive, which begins today, Wednesday July 1.

To understand the power of one donation:

$5- Supplies a classroom with pencils for the month

$10- Supplies an elementary student with a supply kit to start the year off right

$15- Provides a middle/high school student with the supplies they need to succeed

$20- Provides a hygiene kit to a student so they can feel confident at school

$50- Prepares a classroom with the supplies needed for the month

Go online to donate and set up a one-time donation or a recurring gift. You can also text “Supply2020” to 41444 to make your donation.

The annual supply drive historically draws competition among local businesses to see who can donate the most supplies, and despite the coronavirus pandemic the Foundation still wants to host the race to the finish line and award different businesses the title of “the ultimate donor!”
