Thanks to your kindness, the School Uniform Campaign raised $183,613 – exceeding our goal- to supply uniforms for Collier County Public Schools elementary-age children, enabling our students come dressed for school stress-free.
Uniforms have several benefits, including keeping children focused on their education, but many families struggle to pay for them. In 2022,
Twenty-nine elementary schools received uniforms for students in need, including 5,952 shirts, 7,080 shorts, and 1,512 sweatshirts.
Thank you to our partner Naples Children & Education Foundation (NCEF) and a Community Foundation anonymous donor, we were able to provide a $75,000 challenge match. Along with the Naples Daily News, we helped our students and families lessen their financial burden.
