The congregation at South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church is asking for donations of school supplies for area students.
The church needs pencils, pens, markers, notebooks, rulers, calculators, scissors, hand sanitizers and backpacks, but also will accept any other type of school supply. The donations, needed by Sept. 9, will go to Classroom Central, A Child’s Place and Center of Hope before nearly 5,000 homeless Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students get them.
People not wanting to buy supplies also can make monetary donations through the church’s website, www.smpchome.org/mysmpc, or by check made payable to SMPC with “School Tools” in the memo line.
Those interested in contributing can contact Kara Guy at 704-544-0404 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The church is located at 8601 Bryant Farms Road.
