The College of Central Florida and Association of Florida Colleges CF Chapter donated school supply items to College Park Elementary School valued at $3,248. Items included kindergarten start smart supply packs and student incentives and resources.
“College Park Elementary has a student population where 100 percent of the students are economically disadvantaged and the school has an 84 percent minority rate,” said Dr. Renae Robinson, Teacher Education faculty and business partner liaison. “As a business partner, we have the privilege of making an impact on the success of those students right in our backyard.”
CF has 400 full-time employees and gives back to the community in a variety of ways through the American Heart Association, the United Way in Citrus and Marion County, College Park Elementary School as well as the Salvation Army’s Evangeline Booth Garden apartments.
The AFC CF chapter has 262 members and has been hosting the school supply drive annually as part of the partnership it has with College Park Elementary School. AFC represents employees, presidents and trustees associated with the Florida College System, and actively promotes, represents and supports members and institutions as they prepare students for the future. AFC has chapters throughout the state of Florida.
