Pride Center, Women with Pride, and Broward Education Foundation

Collect School Supplies for Children

 

Each year, The Pride Center at Equality Park and their Women with Pride program partner with Broward Education Foundation to collect school supplies for our community’s most vulnerable children.

Now, the impact of COVID-19 is far-reaching and has disproportionately impacted those least able to afford it in Broward County – children. Untold numbers of children in Broward County Public Schools, whose families struggled to make ends meet before COVID-19, will be in desperate need of basic school supplies at the start of the school year in mid-August.

What will back to school look like this year? Whether in the classroom, via remote learning or a combination of both, SAFETY is of paramount importance.

Will you help? They are collecting donations until August 21!

Your contributions help provide individually sealed 18-piece basic school supply kits to every student in 112 Title I elementary schools in Broward County. It’s a huge undertaking, but our community’s children need our help. You can equip as many students as you choose.

Equip-A-School (avg 880 students)          $3,500

Equip-A-Class (avg 25 students)               $  250

Equip-A-Kid (1 student)                           $   10

Each basic school supply kit is individually sealed for maximum safety.

With your help, the education of our community’s children will not be another tragic casualty of COVID-19. To equip students for success in this unprecedented time, please visit BrowardEducationFoundation.org/Pride.

Donations can also be made on Facebook herehttps://www.facebook.com/donate/271943660771487/; all contributions received through their Facebook fundraiser will be applied to The Pride Center at Equality Park’s Back to School Drive for the Broward Education Foundation.
