Help Our Children Succeed in School

School supplies

Cuts in funding for education take a bigger and bigger bite out of school resources across the nation every year. According to a study by the National School Supply and Equipment Association, school teachers in the United States spent $1.6 billion of their own money last year on school supplies for their classes. The report found that the practice is common to almost all public school teachers. An average of $485 per educator was spent in 2012.
Shrinking school budgets have parents filling the gaps as well, but back-to-school supply shopping can be costly. Sometimes school supplies become a luxury that parents simply can’t afford, but every child deserves to begin the school year with the proper tools.

While we have no statistics for the North and South Callaway school districts, we are sure the need is similar to that experienced in the rest of the nation. In response, Kingdom Telephone Company has organized a school supply drive to help area children succeed in school and invites you to join us in gathering educational tools for donation to our local grade schools.

Materials needed include, but are not limited to:

#2 pencils
colored pencils
pocket folders
spiral notebooks
facial tissues
hand sanitizer
dry erase markers
disinfecting wipes
glue sticks
white glue
3-ring binders
Crayola & Sharpie markers
loose leaf notebook paper
paper towels
Band Aids

The school supply drive will be held until August 31. Bring your donations to our Auxvasse business office during our normal operating hours, Monday through Friday, from 9 AM to 5 PM. A container for donations is available in the lobby.
