Rotary, Hocker’s again teaming up for Carver Academy school supplies

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 in Frankford.

The event will take place Saturday, Aug. 25 from 9 a.m. to noon at Hocker’s Super Center on SR 26 in Clarksville, near the intersection of SR 17.

Volunteers will be passing out lists of needed school supplies such as composition books, notebook paper, binders, pencils, pens, highlighters, markers, erasers, backpacks, 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.

Each year, this event raises approximately $1,000 worth of supplies for GWC students.

Anyone who cannot attend the fundraiser but would like to contribute may contact Whitney Price at 732-3800 or 242-0731.

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 students.
