Getting Results At Back-to-School Drive Telethon 2019

More than $51,829 was raised to support teachers and students in Orange and Osceola Counties. Thank you!!

Thousands watched. Hundreds called. Together, we made an impact.

We are still blown away by the support that poured in during the annual Back-to-School Drive Telethon.

We thank the community for helping to provide children in Central Florida with the tools and experiences they deserve to succeed in school and life!

Special THANK YOUs to:

·   WKMG News 6 team and crew

·   Addition Financial

·  Publix

·  Just in Queso Foundation

·  Univision

·  Cici’s

·   The amazing volunteers and YOU!

Because of this, more than $51,829 was raised to provide essential supplies directly back into the classroom for teachers to teach and for students to learn.

Gifts received during the telethon were eligible to be doubled to provide TWICE the supplies, thanks to generous matching funders – The Bond Foundation and The Joe & Sarah Galloway Foundation.

Missed out on the action? Check out some of the interviews!

There’s still time to make an impact!

Through September 1st, join Central Florida’s largest supply drive to help more than 200,000 students in need start the school year with the supplies to succeed.
