Adopt a School

The initiative to support our local schools through the Lakeland Chamber of Commerce’s Reopen Task Force is in the very early stages, but we’re confident that the Lakeland community will show up in big ways!

At this time, the Mayor and members of the Task Force are requesting support from community and corporate sponsors who would like to “Adopt a School” to assist with the ongoing needs that have been outlined by Superintendent Byrd that the schools will need to keep the students, faculty and staff safe throughout the school year.

Community & Corporate Sponsorships will be a crucial component in getting this program off the ground, and we’re hoping to gain some quick momentum to help share this broadly throughout the city and get the word out quickly so that we can ensure the supplies can be ordered and available as needed.

Our initial goal will be to raise $5,000 for each of the 41 Lakeland area schools to keep the schools equipped with supplies like hand sanitizer, gloves, tissues, disinfectant, antibacterial soap, etc. do not fall in short supply.
