Ormond Beach, FL-The annual backpack school supply drive by the Jewish Federation of Volusia and Flagler Counties still needs help, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Federation Executive Director Gloria Max says after recent appeals for help, donations are coming in and the best news is the drive has gotten an additional $10,000 match. The catch is that the drive needs to collect $20,000 in order to get that match. Max is appealing for help from the community to reach the goal.

The drive has donated backpacks full of school supplies to local students in need for about the last two decades. About 7,000 students each year receive the help.

You can donate at:
Jewish Federation – School Supply Kits
470 Andalusia Avenue
Ormond Beach, FL 32174
