Title
Sabal Elementary Receives $25,000 From Discover®

Discussion

Discover┬«  is donating $25,000 to Sabal Elementary School as part of this year's Everyday Giveaway Sweepstakes promotion. Sabal was chosen by Cocoa resident Sharlon Koodie, an Everyday Giveaway Sweepstakes April monthly winner, who has family members that attend the school.

Throughout the year, every purchase made on a Discover card is automatically entered for a chance to win a monthly prize of $25,000, and Discover matches the win by donating $25,000 to a public school of the winner's choosing.

The donation will be used to complete the second phase of a K-6 playground at Sabal.



Recommendation

Accept the donation from Discover® to Sabal Elementary.
