The Poinciana Area Council has been busy all summer collecting and counting school supplies from our friends and partners in the community. At their B2B networking event at Mindful Storage in July attendees were asked to bring a school supply donation in lieu of an attendance fee.
Additional contributions were made by Gatorade, Poinciana Medical Center, and CenterState Bank, who each collected supplies at their locations throughout the summer. District 3 Commissioner Brandon Arrington also made a major contribution after PAC Board members volunteered at his Back to School event in August. Fortunately, the team at Mindful Storage were kind enough to donate a unit to keep the PAC supplies safe until the time of delivery. PAC could not be more grateful for these contributions that truly made this year’s supply drive a community effort!
On September 11th PAC board members delivered supplies to Poinciana Academy of Fine Arts, Poinciana High School, and Osceola Science Charter School. Poinciana High School is a long-time partner of PAC’s. Every spring, they allow the PAC board of directors to host the annual PAC Scholarship Awards Luncheon at the school, where it is always a pleasure to be served by students from the culinary academy. Students from the Poinciana Academy of Fine Arts have performed in the past at PAC’s PoincianaFest, and they are part of the lineup again this year! Osceola Science Charter School is currently a guest in the Poinciana area as they wait out construction delays at their permanent location. The extra aid was appreciated in their time of transition. Next up, PAC will make a donation to Discovery Intermediate School.
What’s next for PAC? On September 18th they will hold their second B2B event this year at Valencia’s Poinciana Campus. They invite attendees to “laugh and relax” for an evening away from the office. Stop by and enjoy a set from Laughs for the Troops or a massage from Riviera Spa Massage. There is no charge to attend the B2B, but the PAC Board of Directors is asking for donations to aid hurricane Dorian relief in the Bahamas. Please bring a supply donation and let our friends to the south see what a generous community Osceola county is!
PAC’s third annual PoincianaFest at Valencia is November 2nd! The vendor application is out. Learn more and find the application by clicking here. PAC will be collecting hurricane relief donations at PoincianaFest as well.
