Each August, United Way staff and volunteers are stationed outside of Wal-Mart in Laurens to accept school supplies on behalf of both the Laurens and Clinton school districts. Just in time for back-to-school, the drive is scheduled in early August and gives community residents an opportunity to assist area schools in providing much-needed school supplies to our county’s underprivileged children.
The 2018 School Supplies Drive event will be held Friday, August 3rd & Saturday, August 4th at Walmart in Laurens.
Following the drive, the supplies are disbursed to both school districts for distribution to area schools. The schools then match the needs of area children with the supplies donated.
Local school district officials have prepared a list of supplies commonly needed in their schools throughout the county. This list can accessed by clicking HERE!
