Each year MICF organizes a School Supply Drive as part of its mission of community outreach and caring, and to help children and families in need. This year we have decided to focus our school supplies initiative on New River Middle School in Fort Lauderdale, which is a Marine Magnet School and longtime marine industry partner.
Gordon Connell, MICF executive director said, “Through the support of the many friends of MICF, the supplies we are able to provide help ensure that the children and the teachers are able to focus on learning and teaching.” he added, “Guidance Counselors and other school officials have told us that when a classroom or a child has inadequate supplies it creates distractions and limits the educational opportunities, so we try to do our part to help!”
In 2017 MICF donated more than $1,000 worth of stationery supplies, backpacks and five dozen school uniform shirts in three different colors to New River Middle School. You can support this initiative by dropping off supplies at one of the marine industry locations listed below, or by making a financial donation which will purchase needed additional supplies.
