CLARKSVILLE – The Southern Sussex Rotary Club and Hocker’s Super Center are once again teaming up to host a school supply fundraiser for the G.W. Carver Academy.

The event will be held Sunday, Aug. 16 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hocker’s Super Center on Route 26 in Clarksville (near the intersection of SR 17).

Volunteers will be passing out lists of school supplies such composition books, loose leaf paper, pencils, highlighters, tissues and hand sanitizer that shoppers can purchase and then donate upon leaving the store.

There will also be a cash donation jar with the proceeds being used to purchase book bags.

Last year, this event raised nearly $1,000 worth of supplies for GWC students.

The G.W. Carver Academy extends sincere thanks to Gerald Hocker and the Southern Sussex Rotary Club for their generosity in collecting these much-needed supplies for its students.
