Tax Collector Mike Fasano’s five offices will collect donations in July for the Pasco County School District’s ABC (Assist, Believe & Care) Program. The program was created to provide financial assistance to students and their families who are experiencing economic hardship, especially when those needs interfere with the student’s ability to be academically successful. The cash collected will go into a fund that teachers can use when they see or learn of a need a child may have. In past years this office has donated thousands of dollars to Pasco schools to support this important program.
“The management and staff of each of the five tax collector offices in the county will choose which school in their respective community they want to donate their funds to,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “Donations collected countywide will be pooled and then split evenly among the five communities.”
“It is a great honor for our staff to work to help students in need by supporting the Assist, Believe & Care Program,” remarks Mike Fasano. “The strain of COVID, the changes over the past year with school being providing online and in-person as well as the overall uncertainty of the times, only adds to the pressure families are under. Children without food, adequate clothing or other unmet needs often suffer academically. It is our hope as we hold this campaign for another year, that the assistance we can provide will help alleviate some of the stress many families are feeling.”
