Apopka Police Department Helping Teachers


Businesses Needed to Support APD's Back to School Shopping Event for Teachers

From The Apopka Police Department

Teachers deserve so much community support. The average public school teacher spends $485 out of pocket each year to help provide school materials like paper, pencils and art supplies for students in their classrooms. The typical cost for all these extra materials is about $945.

The Apopka Police Department is partnering with local businesses to provide some help for the next school year. The Back to School Shopping Event will be Friday, August 5th and will provide $200 for each selected elementary school teacher to purchase school materials at U.S. Toy – a store for children’s toys, classroom materials and party supplies at 805 E. Semoran Blvd. in Apopka. Elementary schools in Apopka nominate two teachers each.

The Apopka Police Department proudly recognizes current sponsors and encourages more businesses to help out.

To participate, send an e-mail to chall@apopka.net or call (407) 703-1771.

So far, these businesses are providing support: Heather Baker State Farm, A-OK Tires, Greenbrier after-life pet care specialists, Beef O' Bradys, Lou Haubner Realty and John V. Gammichia Family Dentistry. Thank you!
