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 proceeds going to purchase book bags.

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

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

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