Fiddler’s Creek residents donate 1,500 school supply items to Manatee Elementary students

October 11th, 2017

Fiddler’s Creek residents recently donated more than 1,500 back-to-school items for students starting a new year at Manatee Elementary School.

“Again this year, the faculty and staff of Manatee Elementary School were awestruck by the generosity of the Fiddler’s Creek community and their residents,” said Manatee Elementary Principal Dr. Laurie Mearsheimer. “The donations by Fiddler’s Creek residents are a huge help to families that might otherwise struggle, and with our current situation following Hurricane Irma, your largesse has become even more needed and appreciated.”

Fiddler’s Creek residents, along with the membership and activities team, delivered 249 notebooks, 93 backpacks, 29 lunch boxes, 124 boxes of crayons and a variety of other items and necessities – enough to check off the supply needs of dozens of students.

The annual Back to School Drive at Fiddler’s Creek started several years ago after a resident learned many students at the nearby elementary school started the school year without shoes. Since that time, and as more and more residents have become aware of the need, the donations have continued to grow.

“Fiddler’s Creek is pleased to again support this great cause,” said Ron Albeit, General Manager of The Club & Spa at Fiddler’s Creek. “We applaud the generosity of our residents and their dedication to this effort, resulting in nearly double the contributions of last year.”
