Education Resource Center

The Foundation would like to invite our teachers to come in and shop for free supplies for your classroom and students!

The ERC is open Tuesdays and Thursdays between 1:30pm -5:30pm.  Appointments are required after 4:30pm. Please click HERE to schedule for the ERC. If you have any questions or would like to drop off a donation please email

We are located at 2266 Second Street, Fort Myers. Our parking lot is located behind the building, off Jackson Street.

The Education Resource Center was established to collect and store new and reusable items donated by businesses and individuals to benefit our teachers, students and schools. Teachers in Lee County Public Schools can shop at the ERC for additional materials and resources for classroom instruction.  The ERC is an important resource for our teachers and students!

Business and community leaders have also recognized the importance of the ERC and generously donate throughout the year much needed school supplies to keep our shelves full.  We are very grateful for their support.
