Brenda and Paul Germain dropped off the results of our school supplies drive to a Fayetteville NC STEM school Aug 20, 2018. Thank you to all who donated, we were able to purchase $354.17 of supplies, detailed below. Donations totaled $315.00.

306 Single subject notebooks
240 Pencils
336 Erasers
120 Glue sticks
108 Pencil sharpeners
50 Folders
40 Boxes of crayons
30 Sets of colored pencils
20 Scissors
20 Composition notebooks
17 Book bags
18 Boxes of jumbo crayons
20 Kindergarten tablets
10 Hand sanitizers
10 Clipboards
20 Packets of loose leaf paper
20 One inch binders
1 Electric pencil sharpener

While they were happy to receive our donation, there was an issue this year. If you notice, there are no school employees in the pictures. Apparently, they have had some blow-back from the community about previous years' pictures in the local newspapers. In fact, we were specifically asked not to even mention the name of the school in our news releases. When pressed, we were told that some of the blow-back had come from school administration. To say we were disappointed is an understatement.
