In order to meet the vast demands of the School District of Manatee County during the COVID-19 crisis, the Manatee Education Foundation has launched a relief fund on their website. Donations will support emergency needs and programs for the School District of Manatee County.

“The Manatee Education Foundation wants to help the District connect with families who need support during this difficult time,” said Manatee Education Foundation President Mary Glass. “We stand with our educators, whether it’s helping pay for internet access, technology tools or supplies for teachers who need support.”

A donation button for the COVID-19 Relief Fund has been setup on www.MEFinfo.org.

Dozens of school buses have been equipped with WiFi hot spots to help families throughout the community log into eLearning programs. Thousands of technology devices have also been distributed throughout the community so students can continue their lessons.

“We are grateful for community support and will continue to work together to keep education and the safety of our students and staff a top priority during this unprecedented time,” said Superintendent Cynthia Saunders. “The MEF COVID-19 Relief Fund can help us take a burden from families who are having to make unbelievable sacrifices during the crisis.” 

For additional information, please contact the President of Manatee Education Foundation Mary Glass at 941-737-7175.
