The Northeast chapter of the Hutchinson Bell was created by Daniel Gerber and Gary Peralta in order to help young people in the Northeast learn about Florida College. Florida College is a four-year academic institution run by Christians that provides a Bible-based collegiate education. Daniel and Gary, who have both attended Florida College, wanted to show the next generation of students that it is possible to get an excellent academic education in an environment that encourages, rather than attacks, faith in God.

Many families in the Northeast struggle with high cost of living coupled with low income levels. Financially supporting children in college can be close to impossible for some families. We believe financial concerns should not prevent students from enjoying the unique environment of FC. We want to help by creating an annual scholarship fund to give deserving students and their families an opportunity for financial relief. At the moment funds for the scholarships will come from donations, and in the future from fundraisers in the Northeast area.

If you would like to help provide students in the Northeast with the chance to experience the great experience Florida College has to offer, just click on the Donate tab on our website and you can help make their dreams a reality.
