As schools welcome back their students, we are excited to continue our partnership with ESTHER in Orlando, Florida to help meet the needs of as many students as we can. 1,700 students in and around the Orlando area will receive backpacks filled with supplies, new clothing and shoes, and other basic needs, such as food. Every child deserves to start the school year off the right way!
Foundation 4Life donated $10,000 to help assist with a few new programs this year. One school that we have adopted is Phyllis Wheatley Elementary School in Apopka Florida. Many families in this school are single moms and almost 100 percent of the children/families live below the line of poverty. The average number of students is 450-460. Every student will receive a backpack filled with school supplies.
There will also be an in house program for mothers to be able come to receive their children's school supplies, along with clothes, food, and new shoes for their children. We expect about 500 children.
Lovell Elementary is another school we will be helping this year. We will be providing pencils and paper to all 750 students!
