Tax Collector’s Office Collecting School Supplies for Local Schools

The Alachua County Tax Collector’s Office is partnering with Tools for Schools to donate school supplies to local students and teachers for the upcoming school year.  Tools for Schools is a reusable resource center located in Alachua County, Florida, providing new and gently used educational supplies to Alachua County Public School teachers at no cost. Tools for Schools operates with disadvantaged children in mind since many parents cannot afford the cost of a school lunch, let alone the necessary school supplies.

If you’d like to donate to Tools for Schools, you can drop off items at any of our three office locations now through August 9th:

Downtown Public Branch – 12 SE 1st Street, Gainesville, FL 32601

Northwest Public Branch – 5801 NW 34th Blvd, Gainesville, FL 32653

Southwest Public Branch – 3207 SW 35th Blvd, Gainesville, FL 32608

Office hours – 8:30 AM-4:30 PM
