When Hurricane Irma hit Southwest Florida the storm wreaked havoc. Over the past week we have been assessing the status of our staff and students. Many of our Lee County School District families have been displaced and are in need. In response to this need the Lee County School District is currently accepting the following donations for students and staff at the Lee County Public Education Center located at 2855 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers, FL 33966:

  • Cases of water
  • Non-perishable food items
  • Gift cards for Publix, Walmart, Target
  • Gift cards for gas
  • Underwear and socks, adult and kid sizes (new only please)
  • Baby diapers
  • Baby wipes
  • Toiletry items (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.)
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Insect repellant
  • Shoes, adult and kid sizes (new or gently used)
