Our Work for Students, Supporting Champions For Learning

Collier County Students in Need of School Supplies Following Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian has devastated Collier County, many lost everything. With school resuming on October 6th, Collier County’s students and families are in need of school supplies as well as basic supplies. Champions For Learning has created a list of supplies that our Collier students need to ensure their academic success post-storm. We are asking our community to bring newly purchased supplies to St. Monica’s Episcopal Church (7070 Immokalee Rd, Naples, FL 34119), who will be collecting and sorting supplies. The need is great, but we know that our Collier County community will rise to the challenge.
