YOU DID IT, PALM BEACH!
A message from EFPBC's President/CEO, James Gavrilos, to the finest school district community in the state of Florida!
YOU DID IT!
Palm Beach County…you did it! Two weeks ago, your Education Foundation set a lofty goal. With our School District shifting to “Distance Learning”, we wanted to ensure that every student had access to the internet and a device from which to participate in their school lessons. We set out to raise $100,000. And in just two weeks, we met and surpassed our goal. I am so proud to report that 179 donors contributed $100,906.00! Using our website, sending checks, or through our new Mobile “Text to Give” platform, the response was overwhelming.
With your generous support, 483 Chromebooks were purchased and delivered to the School District. An additional 76 “gently used” devices were donated and dropped off at our partner Office Depot locations throughout the county.
Distance learning is now the new norm. Thank you all for your generous support which truly helped the students of Palm Beach County!
