AMVETS Post 2000 Donates Calculators for Student Veterans

(Bradenton, Fla., March 4, 2021)State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota’s (SCF) Venice Student Veterans of America (SVA) chapter received a donation of 10 graphing calculators from the Ladies Auxiliary of AMVETS Post 2000 in North Port. SCF student veterans and dependents will be able to offset the cost of school-related expenses, as each of the TI-84 calculators cost over $100. The donated calculators will be loaned to students each semester.

SVA works on five primary initiatives to provide the resources needed for military veterans to succeed in higher education and meaningfully contribute to civilian society: supporting campus chapters, advocacy, connecting alumni, investing in research and developing partnerships with organizations provide opportunities for deserving communities. The SCF Foundation and SVA work together to provide support for student veterans at SCF. SVA chapters exist at both SCF Bradenton and SCF Venice.
