(Youngstown, OH) – The Ohio Education Association Educational Foundation has once again made a generous donation of $5,000 to the Anthony V. Spano Foundation’s School Supplies Fund. This donation helps make it possible for the Spano Foundation to continue its School Supplies Fund for the upcoming school year. “We always appreciate the efforts of Anthony Spano and the Spano Foundation for the continued support to help our schools in our community,” stated Scott DiMauro, OEA President, “that is why it is important for us to continue to support the School Supplies Fund.”
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 educations.
In 2021, the Spano Foundation also received an anonymous donation that enabled the Spano Foundation to give to 15 school districts and nearly $27,000 in school supplies were delivered.
“Our goal at the Spano Foundation is to continue raising funds so that school districts and teachers can keep applying for grants to help offset the costs they pay out of their own private dollars” Anthony Spano, Executive Director of the Anthony V. Spano Foundation stated.
The fund was created to help bridge the gap for schools and teachers who no longer have the dollars due to cutbacks from the state. For more information on this Fund, visit SpanoFoundation.com
