To Make An Impact

Help local teachers fill their classrooms with supplies

Florida’s Unique Education Learning Support (FUELS) is a nonprofit that supports teachers in Title 1 schools by donating items that are not provided by the school district.  “We were founded on the idea that no teacher should have to dip into their own pocket to meet the needs of the students in their classrooms,” said FUELS Co-founder and executive director Melissa Ley. In addition to education essentials like classroom supplies, FUELS provides teachers with sensory support materials for students in the Exceptional Student Education (ESE) program and what Ley calls “non-education essentials,” like snacks and hygiene products. Support the nonprofit by donating items or money on its website, fuels4teachers.org.

Schedule a food donation event

“Fill-A-Truck to Feed A Family” is a new initiative from Daystar Life Center to aid in hunger relief in the local community. Many school-aged students and families will no longer have access to school meals during summer break. Daystar Life Center is collecting essential pantry items that may otherwise expire or go unused. The nonprofit is recruiting organizations, churches and neighborhoods to participate in the program. Daystar Life Center will bring a truck to your location and collect walk-up and drive-through donations. To get involved, contact Jacqueline Roche at (727) 605-0207 or email jacqueline.roche@daystarlife.com.
