United Way of Central Florida, GEICO and Jesse Keen Elementary Team Up to Empower Students with 4th Annual Backpack Donation Event
Lakeland, FL, June 28, 2023 – GEICO, the renowned insurance company, is once again joining hands with United Way of Central Florida and local elementary school, Jesse Keen, to make a positive impact on students’ lives. In a continuing effort to support education and the local community, GEICO along with the help of their associates, will be donating 450 backpacks filled with essential school supplies during the annual event at Jesse Keen School on Friday, July 28 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
