Out of the 79,340 Pasco County School students, more than 42,000 qualify for free or reduced-fee lunch. This ever-increasing number of economically challenged students is why the Pasco Education Foundation is founding a free school supply center “Wise Supplies” in Land O’ Lakes, FL.
The Wise Supplies Center needs your help in stocking the shelves with essential items to ensure all students have the needed supplies to be successful. With generous donations from local businesses and individuals, we can invest in students today to ensure a bright future for tomorrow.
All donations are tax-deductible.
There are different ways you can help make a difference:
We welcome donations of school supplies, crafts, sanitizing products, and more, as well as leftover school supplies. See below for a list of teachers’ most requested items.
We would also appreciate any display cases, shelving, and storage containers to organize the Center.
