Orlando, FL, September 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Altamonte Springs-based Roger B. Kennedy Construction during August collected and donated two SUV carloads of school supplies for Seminole County students in need. The annual Tools 4 Seminole Schools supply drive benefits A Gift For Teaching - Seminole, a program of The Foundation for Seminole County Public Schools. The Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that raises funds to further enhance the superior performance of students and teachers in Seminole County Public Schools.
“In keeping with the Foundation's mission, we are helping to put school supplies in the hands of students who need them,” stated Roger B. Kennedy, Jr., President. “Accordingly, I wish to thank our many valued clients, subcontractors, vendors and employees who responded so generously in this year’s drive.”
In appreciation of the company’s efforts, Becky Miller, Store Supervisor for A Gift For Teaching - Seminole, stated, “Our special thanks go out to Roger B. Kennedy Construction for all they do in our annual Tools 4 Seminole Schools supply drive!”
According to the Foundation’s website, more than 49 percent of students in Seminole County -- nearly 30,000 -- qualify for the free and reduced meals program. Of this number, approximately 1,500 are homeless. Many parents and guardians struggle to make ends meet, and that often means sending children to school without the supplies they need. A Gift For Teaching - Seminole provides free school and classroom supplies to every Seminole County public school through the Free Store for teachers.
For more information about the Tools 4 Seminole Schools supply drive continuing through September 23, or A Gift For Teaching - Seminole, please contact Becky Miller at Becky_Miller@scps.k12.fl.us or (407) 320-7768.
