HCEF Programs

Tools 4 Schools

Tools 4 Schools is a wonderful program that provides support for Hernando County teachers.
This program allows teachers to shop for 25 free items every month.

Please note:

Due to COVID-19, masks are required. If you do not have one, we will be able to provide one (while supplies last). In accordance with CDC guidelines, and for the safety of shoppers/staff, we request that all visitors/children not shopping wait outside. We are limiting the number of customers in the store at one time to five. Please be prepared to wait if the need arises.

Operation Cinderella

Operation Cinderella allows High School girls the opportunity to attend their homecoming and prom dances. Girls who don’t have a chance to buy a dress are able to visit the boutique and try on dresses that they like and attend their dance!
