School Care Strike Delivers Supplies to Students

The chapter that serves Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field recently gave a $10,000 educational grant to Lewis School in Valparaiso, Florida. Many of the 760 students at Lewis are Title 1 (low income) and military-connected. The impact of COVID-19 has only exacerbated these students' financial situation and placed great strain on their households. This grant enabled a "School Care Strike" wherein the chapter delivered much-needed school supplies to meet the needs of many financially constrained students.
