Pack the Bus Supply Drive kicks off

BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

A big back to school supply drive is underway in the Lowcountry.

The Beaufort County School District is teaming up with Beaufort Jasper Hampton Comprehensive Health Services for its second annual Pack the Bus School Supply Drive.

Residents and business leaders are asked to donate boxes and bags full of pencils, scissors, paper, glue and other school supplies. All of the supplies will go to those who need them most.

"As you know, school is less than a month away," said Dr. Gregory McCord, chief student services officers. "Sometimes we have families that are not as fortunate as others, and they need assistance and making sure that the kids are ready, so we're asking and encouraging everyone to come and support our cause."

The Beaufort Pac the Bus will be going on all week.

If you want to donate, the bus will be parked at the Health Center located on Highway 170.
