Red for Ed
The "Red for Ed" initiative aims to "paint the county" in the color red to raise awareness about the critical need of our local students for the most basic items of food and school supplies. Over 62% of the Lake County School District's student population lives at or below poverty level. The Student Services Department reports there are 1,946 homeless students. The goal for the Red for Ed campaign is that each student who is in need will start the 2019-2020 school year with the supplies to be successful.
Help us stock the shelves with supplies for the upcoming school year! We're collecting pens, pencils, markers, crayons, colored pencils, spiral notebooks, folders, tape, rulers, binders, scissors, staples, backpacks, highlighters, clue sticks and more! Stop in to any of our Lake County locations (Clermont
, Lady Lake
) between now and July 31st to drop off your donation today!
