Tax Collector Mike Fasano’s five offices will be collecting 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 donated goes into a fund that teachers can use when they see or learn of a need a student may have. In past years, this office has donated thousands of dollars to Pasco schools to support this important program.
“While the impact of COVID may be lessening, there are still many other challenges caused by these uncertain economic times,” remarks Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “The strain can be enormous on a family, especially when a parent loses a job, or a single parent is struggling to raise children while doing all they can to make ends meet. Children without food, adequate clothing or other unmet needs often suffer academically. The ABC Program was designed to help students and their families who are experiencing hardship or crisis. The assistance provided helps students get back on track and stay on track by helping fulfill some basic food, clothing, and school supply needs. During the month of July our five offices will be collecting monetary donations to help children and their families in their time of need.”
Cash donations can be made at any of the five tax collector locations in Pasco County.
