Amscot Financial presented a $1,000 contribution to The Mary Bradley Weeks Educational Project, Inc., to help fund the purchase of school supplies for Sarasota and Manatee County students in need. The Sarasota-based non-profit organization was established in 2002 by Mary Bradley Weeks in memory of her two-year-old great grandson who was killed by an unlicensed hit-and-run driver. Participants in the school supply giveaways become eligible by referral from designated community agencies. The giveaways are held before the fall and winter semesters, each August and January. Since the project was founded, hundreds of students have benefited from this act of love.
