Supply Drive with Locations art

Lancaster County schools are the recipients of multiple supply drives for the upcoming school year. Every school in the district will receive items for students and/or staff to help them have a successful year.

Classroom Central supplies 9 schools

Nine schools have been chosen to receive backpacks filled with essential school supplies for every student in attendance. The Carolina Panthers and Nicole and David Tepper Foundation were among 27 sponsors who partnered with Classroom Central to provide the backpacks.

Classroom Central chose the nine schools based on criteria including percentage of free/reduced lunch, usage rate, student population and more.

The supply-filled backpacks will be delivered to Brooklyn Springs, Buford, Clinton, Erwin, Kershaw, McDonald Green and North elementary schools, and A.R. Rucker and South middle schools.

Local drives

LCSD is in the middle of a districtwide school supply collection of its own. In a partnership with the TreeTops neighborhood in Van Wyck, it has received dozens of items and donations from families across Lancaster County.

The district’s Stuff the Bus initiative from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, July 25, and Tuesday, July 26, at Walmart, 805 S.C. 9 Bypass West, Lancaster, and Indian Land Intermediate School, 8361 Charlotte Highway, Indian Land, will bring in more and these supplies will be distributed to all county schools.

Volunteers from TreeTops will help sort the collected donations. The district supply drive will benefit all students in need.

Several smaller organizations within the county have also reached out and offered to collect supplies on behalf of the district.

Sun City neighborhood in Indian Land holds a sizable collection annually. With more than 3,100 homes, the neighborhood collects thousands of dollars and nearly 300 boxes of much-needed school supplies. The neighborhood distributes supplies to nine schools in the district, including all the Indian Land area schools.

The United Way of Lancaster County and Transformation Church in Indian Land are holding their own supply drives to benefit teachers and staff across the district.

All of the students and staff in Lancaster County will benefit from the collection and distribution of these school supplies. District officials are grateful for such a supportive community and hope these collected supplies will help ease the financial burden many families feel this time of year.
