United Way School Resource Center

Getting Students What They Need

The United Way School Resource Center officially opened in September of 2020 in partnership with the Lee County School District. The United Way School Resource Center provides clothing, hygiene essentials, and school supplies to children in need throughout the District. Students are also provided information for United Way 211.

In just one week of school being open, two thousand orders were filled and delivered to children in need.

School Counselors, social workers, and other key staff work with students and request items from the United Way School Resource Center on their behalf. Items are then sent directly to the school, to the attention of staff, and provided to the student.

To find out how you can get involved email Edelyn@UnitedWayLee.org

Grateful For Provision

Dear Edelyn,

Thank you and the United Way for sending the clothes and supplies for our foster children at Bonita Springs Elementary. We greatly appreciate all your help and we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the items in these boxes. I know the one girl will be able to share some of these items with her siblings who are staying with her at the shelter.

Thank you from all of us at Bonita Springs Elementary.
Nancy Omonte M.S. School Counselor
