The Foundation would like to invite you to come in and shop for free supplies for your classroom. We re-opened our doors for teachers in July, 2021. To date over 600 LCSD educators and staff have visited the resource center.
The ERC is open most Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:30pm -5:30pm , by appointment. Please click on the monthly calendar to schedule an appointment. If you have any questions or would like to drop off a donation please email [email protected]
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 created to collect and store new and reusable items donated by businesses and individuals to benefit our teachers, students and their schools. Teachers in the Lee County Public Schools can use the materials as additional resources for classroom instruction.
The Education Resource Center is open to Lee County Public School teachers two times per week during the school year. The popularity of the Education Resource Center is evident based on the amount of donations received and teachers who visit.
