On Thursday, July 31, 2014, Orlando City SC front office staff volunteered at a Gift for Teaching’s (AGFT) back-to-school event. Known for holding the largest back-to-school drive campaign, AGFT invited local residents and businesses to help stuff backpacks and stock shelves in anticipation for the month-long drive.
“It was a joy to be able to partner with AGFT to help provide much needed supplies to teachers and students in the community,” said Orlando City SC Account Executive Molly Hartman. “It was amazing to see how enthusiastic all the volunteers were about serving the community.”
Since 1998, AGFT has been a provider of free resources and surplus materials for teachers and students in need. With the goal of ensuring that every child has the tools and experiences to succeed in school and life, AGFT serves nearly 330 public schools. The organization also offers additional programs to expand the scope of learning for students and teachers in music, art and physical education.
