Wise Supplies

Home / Wise Supplies

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.
