Uncle Matt’s Organic, along with the South Lake Chamber of Commerce and Pig on the Pond, helped honor almost 900 public school teachers and administrators on August 15 for the annual Teacher Appreciation Breakfast.

Held at the Wesley Center at the First United Methodist Church in Clermont, Florida, organizers provided the 890 teachers with a healthy breakfast that included 12 oz. selections of Uncle Matt’s premium organic apple and orange juices.

In addition to breakfast, teachers were presented with awards and prizes, as well as supplies and gifts that totaled $130,000 in giveaways.  Among the door prizes were two Uncle Matt’s gift baskets with t-shirts, cooler bags, a $50 gift certificate for fresh organic citrus and free juice coupons, alongside other back-to-school goodies.

The event honored the “Teachers of the Year” and  “Rookies of the Year” from each area school with prize packages that included cash and rolling carts full of school supplies. Also during the event, teacher faculties competed for “Most School Spirit” through a cheering contest.

“Uncle Matt’s is a proud supporter of our hardworking South Lake County teachers that are making a difference in our youth everyday,” says Susan McLean, Human Resources Director at Uncle Matt’s Organic. “We hope to continue to participate in this worthwhile event that recognizes these classroom heroes. And we love helping keep them healthy with our organic juices!”

Lake County, Florida, kicked off the 2013-2014 school year Monday, August 19.
