The Educational Foundation serviced 1,444 elementary students during the annual back to school backpack fairs. These students were identified through the free and reduced lunch program and welcomed by invitation only.
Each student in attendance received a brand new backpack, new school supplies, and other back-to-school items made available by our sponsors.
Three different locations were serviced, making the backpacks accessible to all corners of Lake County. These locations include Tavares, Leesburg, and Clermont.
The Educational Foundation is a non-for-profit organization that is the direct support organization for Lake County Public Schools. Our mission is to serve as the connection between our community and public education, evaluating needs and securing resources to enhance the quality of education.
