Did you know many students don’t have some of the most basic supplies they need to succeed in the classroom?
School is almost back in session and that means shopping for back-to-school supplies, but for 150,000+ students from lower-income Hillsborough County households struggling financially this year, a trip to the store can be stressful.
So, the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCAs & Hillsborough Education Foundation (HEF) are holding a back-to-school drive. Starting Wednesday, July 28 through Friday, August 6, all community members are invited to donate new school supplies at these participating YMCAs:
