Orlando, FL - O,R&L Facility Services Krissie D'Abate, Executive Assistant to the company's CEO, lends her assistance at the 2012 Summer of Dreams "Stuff-A-Backpack" event on July 25, 2012 held at the "A Gift for Teachers" facility in Orlando, FL.
Summer of Dreams is a 10-week program to benefit the estimated 8,500 homeless children in Central Florida. During the summer months these children have nowhere to go, nothing to do and have no access to the free resources that the school year provides. Fifth Third Bank, along with business sponsors like O,R&L Facility Services have brought back this program for a second year. The Summer of Dreams provides registered homeless students up to 10 weeks of summer camp as well as daily activities focusing on academics, art/enrichment and athletics, access to free, nutritious meals including breakfast, lunch and a snack, supervision by qualified camp counselors, field trips, tutoring and mentoring, transportation, food and hygiene products to be sent home with every student each Friday, a backpack of school supplies at the conclusion of the camp to be used during the upcoming school year and one-on-one financial counseling sessions for parents focusing on financial wellness, budgeting and managing debt.
O,R&L is proud to work in alliance with other great business sponsors to provide these children with a great sense of community and preparation for the 2012-2013 school year.
