Pinellas Education Foundation’s annual school supply drive ensures that students with the greatest need have the tools to succeed in the new school year. Recognizing that thousands of families in our area struggle to afford these critical supplies, the Pinellas Education Foundation is partnering with Hillsborough Education Foundation to support students on both sides of the Bay with the Tampa Bay School Supply Drive.
60% of students who attend Pinellas County Schools are economically disadvantaged. Given the financial hardships of recent years, this summer’s school supply drive is more important than ever. You can make a direct impact on students’ achievement by participating in our school supply drive. There are many ways to help this year. Scroll down on the page to learn more about each option.
