United Way School Resource Center

In partnership with the School District of Lee County, the United Way and The Price Foundation have opened the School Resource Center in the Lee County Public Education Center. The School Resource Center can provide students with all new brand name shoes, clothing, toiletries, backpacks and school supplies.

School staff, District staff and School Resource Officers will now be able to identify children in need to the students’ school counselor or social worker. An online request will then be submitted to the United Way Community Impact Staff. The needed items are then assembled by United Way Staff and delivered by the District directly to the student’s school within 24-72 hours of the request.

“We are thrilled to bring together all of these exceptional partners to help thousands of our students and their families,” says Jeannine Joy, United Way CEO. “This is the perfect time for this resource and United Way is thankful for the generosity of Price Foundation as the primary sponsor.“

This gift, along with the buying power of United Way, will be able to bring millions of dollars in essential resources to students most in need.
