A Gift for "A Gift For Teaching"

I stopped by A Gift for Teaching last Friday to give them a check for the proceeds from our Earth Day Community Bottle Cap Art Project and they were thrilled! This was such a fun project to do with the kids in our community. It's amazing how many bottle caps we go through in just a few months! We collected more than 10,000 bottle caps for this project and created 35 bottle cap art masterpieces with kids from all over Orlando. The pieces were sold at the Central Florida Earth Day Festival and the proceeds were given to A Gift for Teaching.

The mission of A Gift for Teaching is to improve public education by transferring community surplus
materials and resources free to teachers for their students in need. With Free Stores in Orange, Seminole
and Osceola counties, A Gift for Teaching is able to get free school supplies into the hands of our
community's highest-need schools and classrooms providing necessary tools to students who
otherwise would have none while making sure teachers don't have to spend their own money.

Thanks to everyone who donated their time, talent, supplies, and bottle caps. Together we made a difference in our community!
