As we all Bounce Back from COVID-19 and the economic crisis, restoring our communities is crucial, and we want to do our part to help.
As we all navigate our new personal and professional lives, we challenge our Tampa Bay communities to work together as we help bring jobs and customers back to our local businesses, and be a helping hand in our beautiful communities whenever there is a need.
As community business owners in the Tampa Bay Area, we are joining forces with other Tampa Bay businesses to offer support to our communities and each other in this rapidly changing environment.
Join us in the great Tampa Bay Bounce Back!

👉ANY AMOUNT 👈 you choose to contribute is TRULY APPRECIATED. 🥰
Our goal is to raise $200 per teacher to help them with classroom expenses and I know our Tampa Bay Area communities can do it! 🙏❤️
Did you know?
New 2021 School District rules state- Each student and teacher must have their own scissors, pencils, crayons, markers, paper, etc., there will be no sharing of any supplies?! ✏️📏 📝 🙆♀️
This is a tremendous burden especially for underserved schools and ultimately falls on the teacher to provide these and other essential items.

Twin Lakes Elementary School
Hello! My name is Dominique Orlandi and I am a self contained (all subjects) 5th grade teacher! This will be my third year teaching at twin lakes elementary.
The demographic of students at my school include many low income families. With that being said many of my students arrive on the first day of school with no notebooks, pencils, binders or other supplies listed on the supply list sent home. My students would benefit most from materials such as those listed above.
James Elementary School
This will be my 7th year as an educator. I teach K-2 in a self-contained special needs classroom. Teaching is my passion! I’m looking forward to another successful school year!
I teach a modified curriculum. I make a lot of my own teaching materials. I’m constantly printing, laminating, velcroing, painting, etc. The most important things for me would be computer ink, laminating sheets, velcro dots, craft supplies such as paint, paintbrushes, construction paper, cardstock, etc.

I have a degree in Human Development and have been teaching and working in Early Childhood for more than 10 years; most recently as a curriculum specialist for a private preschool. This year, we relocated to Florida AND had a baby! So I decided to make the jump into virtual teaching via zoom with a school called DailiesPods. DailiesPods has “classrooms” or pods for students ages 3-9 and I am one of their PreK teachers, teaching kiddos ages 3-5. I have setup my own classroom in our apartment and it has been an adjustment! I love that even though I am not physically in the same room (or even state) as many of my students, I am still helping them learn, discover, and thrive! Everyday we do math, science, reading, and writing together and I am able to see their growth and development. Preschool in person is an exciting place but preschool on zoom is a VERY exciting place 🙂
While my classroom doesn’t necessarily need many supplies or materials, we can always use more books! Being able to physically hold and read the book helps engage my students and keeps them more interested than reading a book from the computer.
