Monthly Shopping Program Each full-time instructional teacher from schools in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties that have 60% or more of their students qualifying for free or reduced lunch can shop once a month. Visit our Web site www.agiftforteaching.org/teachers to see if yours is a Monthly Shopping school.   School Representative Program All full-time instructional teachers at schools in Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties that do not have 60% or more of their students qualifying for free or reduced lunch can send up to two teachers to shop a maximum of four times during the month. Please check with your principal to see whether your school has selected shopping representatives. Buddy Boxes – (Orange County only) Buddy Boxes are pre-packaged school supplies, and contain both basic and incentive items. Eligible teachers who are in a hurry or unable to shop in the traditional manner may reserve a Buddy Box from AGFT’s website and pick-it up for themselves, authorize a colleague to pick-up it up for them, or request that it be delivered to their school. Because a limited number of Buddy Boxes are available each day, teachers are asked to cancel an order if their schedule changes and they can no longer pick-up their reserved box. www.agiftforteaching.org/buddybox Teacher Shopping Hours Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday 2:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. Saturday 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Getting Here:  - Take I-4 to John Young Parkway (exit 79, South). - Cross Americana Boulevard and Oak Ridge Road intersections. - Immediately after crossing Oak Ridge Road, turn right onto the first road, into the OCPS complex. - Make the first right onto Mahout Trail.
