Broward Education Foundation announced it distributed a total of 42,000 canisters of Lysol Disinfectant Wipes to all 222 Broward County Public Schools, tech centers, and mailrooms on November 20, 2020.
To break it down, each Broward County Public elementary, middle, and high school, plus technical facilities and mailrooms, each received a minimum of 180 canisters totaling 10,290,000 inches. As there are 63,600 inches in a mile, the cumulative total equates to more than 161 miles.
To put it in perspective, a one-way trip from Fort Lauderdale to Key West.
“We are so pleased to continue to support Broward County Public Schools with whatever needs arise,” said Tim Curtin, board chair of Broward Education Foundation. “I guess you could now literally say Broward Education Foundation goes the extra mile, or in this case the extra 160 miles, for our students and teachers when it comes to keeping them safe and sanitary.”
A 501(c)3 charitable organization, contributing $3 million to Broward County Public Schools annually, in 2018, responding to the Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy in Parkland, Broward Education Foundation initiated a GoFundMe campaign and raised $10.5 million for victims’ families, survivors and those impacted.
