(Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) Thanks to the efforts of local businesses, educational institutions, chambers of commerce, municipalities, civic organizations and individuals, teachers in Broward County Public Title 1 schools will have access to more than $100,000 in new school supplies.

The collections were donated to Broward Education Foundation’s (BEF) Tools for Schools during the annual back-to-school supply drive. Tools for Schools Broward provide teachers from Title I schools the opportunity to shop for their students and classrooms twice a year at no cost.

“Because of the generosity of so many, students in our community will have the tools they need to learn,” said Thomas Severino, CEO of Broward Education Foundation. “These essential supplies provide students with an increase of self-esteem and an equal learning environment for all.”

Donations are accepted year-round. For more information about donating, email or call 754-321-2034.
