A Gift For Teaching holds two very important community drives during the year that give the Central Florida community an easy and fun way to get involved and also help AGFT collect basic school supplies and items that are not often found as surplus from local businesses.
But just because the campaigns focus on specific months it doesn't mean you can't hold a drive any other time. The three Free Stores are open throughout the entire school year and we always need brand new basics and books.
Whether it's a team-building event in your office or a neighborhood collaboration, supply drives help keep the shelves of AGFT's Free Stores stocked so teachers can prepare their classrooms and students throughout the year. To find out how you can start a community drive, contact Yolanda.
A Gift For Teaching's back-to-school campaign is PUSHing the envelope and has evolved into a MOVEment.
Each summer AGFT looks for education advocates who want to be the Movers and Shakers in Central Florida as part of our grassroots fundraising and school supply collecting campaign called PUSH. Have you got a passion for education? Have we got your attention? READ our brief campaign overview
then CONTACT Yolanda
for information on how you, your friends, your family or your office can impact schools in a big way. It's so much easier than you think.
Inspired by Flat Stanley, we're introducing Flat Pencil Boy
! This year's campaign asks the question "Where will learning take you?". Download Flat Pencil Boy, color him in, cut him out and snap photos with him on your travels. Share the photos on our Facebook page
and let us know where learning has taken you. By supporting the PUSH campaign, you'll be helping kids in need go places.
PUSH is IN GOOD COMPANY
! Support these Orlando businesses and AGFT will reap the rewards.
Bright Kids Book Drive
For the entire month of March, campaign partners co-hosts Bright House Networks
our annual Bright Kids Book Drive campaign collecting new and gently-used K-12 books for students in need. AGFT is always seeking the community's help to keep the book sections of the free stores stocked with a wide variety of age-appropriate reading materials for students and their classroom libraries. Donations can be dropped off at AGFT Free Store location throughout the month. For your added convenience, books may also be delivered to any CFE Federal Credit Union
branch from March 14 - April 4, 2012.
