(Youngstown, OH) – A generous donation of 10 pallets of assorted school supplies was made to the Spano Foundation’s School Supplies Fund for distribution to area schools for the upcoming school year. With more than $27,000 worth of supplies, this donor has wished to remain anonymous and the donation will make it possible for the Spano Foundation to continue its School Supplies Fund for schools in need in the area. The Foundation is expecting that these supplies will service hundreds maybe more than that for students in the area, once the Foundation evaluates how they will distribute the supplies.
A special thank you also goes out to Diagnostics Direct, Inc. who has partnered with the Spano Foundation and has graciously received and stored these pallets at their location until distribution. “Whenever possible we feel it is extremely important to give back to the community,” stated Mike Memo, President of Diagnostics Direct, Inc. “and partnering with the Spano Foundation, with the School Supplies Fund will be helping out so many people in the community.”
The fund was established to help the primary and secondary school teachers purchase much-needed classroom supplies for their underprivileged students, which will in turn help further their education. The fund will help bridge the gap for schools and teachers who no longer have the dollars due to cutbacks from the state.
“The goal of the Spano Foundation is to continue to raise funds and supplies so that school districts and teachers can keep applying for grants and receive the supplies needed to help offset the costs that teachers pay out of their private dollars” Anthony Spano, Executive Director of the Anthony V. Spano Foundation stated.
The School Supplies Fund was created in 2016.
