SPECIAL EVENTS

News 13 is very active in Central Florida and sponsors a variety of community events throughout our nine-county coverage area.

A GIFT FOR TEACHING

A Gift For Teaching is Central Florida's primary provider of free school supplies. More than 67 percent of students in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties can't afford school supplies, and more than 12,000 are homeless.

For every $1 donated, A Gift For Teaching can provide up to $10 worth of school supplies.

Supplies can also be donated during normal business hours (Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Email B2SD@agiftforteaching.org to schedule a drop off. The top five essential items are:

  • Packs of No. 2 pencils
  • 8- or 10-count packs of washable markers
  • Pocket folders
  • 24-count crayon packs
  • Packs of loose-leaf paper

Spectrum News 13 is proud to support A Gift For Teaching.
