School Supply Drive for SES
The Sewanee Civic Association is inviting individuals, local groups and businesses to help collect donations of elementary school supplies. The National Retail Federation said families with children in elementary through high school plan to spend an average of $864 on school supplies.
This is where you can help. Collect school supplies and then deliver them to the bins at Sewanee Elementary School Aug. 1-3. SES is located at 206 University Ave.
Monetary donations are accepted at Stirling’s Coffee House, the Blue Chair and Taylor’s Mercantile. Please make checks payable to Sewanee Elementary School.
There is also an Amazon Wish List from the Sewanee Community Chest for those who want to order school supplies. These will be delivered to Sewanee Elementary School. The link is https://a.co/iqtF2x5. The address will be listed as Kerstin Beavers, Sewanee Community Chest, Sewanee, TN 37375.
Sewanee Elementary will oversee the distribution of the available donations to those who need it on Friday, Aug. 4, during the welcome back to school social.
This event is part of the Sewanee Civic Association Treasures for the Chest initiative, a campaign to help promote community-wide service of giving time, support and donations. Volunteers are needed. To volunteer contact us.
The event is sponsored by the Sewanee Community Chest, the Sewanee Civic Association, and the Sewanee Elementary School.
