This morning, January 28, 2016, the Broward Education Foundation launched our first School Supplies on the Move event at Palm Cove Elementary School in Pembroke Pines. I wanted to share the joy of this expansion of our service to our teachers with our free school supplies program — Tools for Schools Broward.
Our teachers were delighted that we were able to support the education of their wonderful students by giving away more than $11,000 in value in supplies.
Palm Cove Elementary School represents the first in the schools that we will serve with our mobile program. Tools for Schools Broward staff are also filling many online orders. I want you to know that we will be leveraging the success of our expanded service to teachers in these two new components of our Tools for Schools Broward project so that we may secure more resources and additional community support.
I wish each of you could see the delight on the faces of our wonderful teachers that we are privileged to serve. As always, thank you for your support of this vital program for student success. Please see the gallery below for photos from this morning’s event.
