Grow Financial Donates Supplies to Teaching Tools Store

Grow Financial is connecting kids to greatness! With support from the Grow Financial Foundation, Grow employees collected school supplies to donate to the Teaching Tools Store at the Hillsborough Education Foundation.

The Teaching Tools Store provides free school supplies year-round to economically disadvantaged students attending Hillsborough County Public Schools designated as Title I. For a school to be considered Title I, 75 percent or more of the students in the school must qualify for the free and reduced lunch program. Teachers from these schools can shop the store monthly collecting on average $200 in free supplies to bring back to their classrooms.

Sharon Unger, Grow Financial’s own VP of Indirect Lending, serves as a member of the Teaching Tools Committee for the Hillsborough Education Foundation. Committee members are dedicated to ensuring there are adequate resources for the program, and supply drives help do just that! Donations to the Teaching Tools Store help assure that students will have the supplies they need year-round to succeed in school.
