The fourth year of the Tools for Schools campaign wrapped up today. This morning, the Chatham County school board was presented with school supplies for the less fortunate children in the area.
Local radio stations E-93 and 900 the Light urged listeners to local drop-off points.
Organizers say the key to a successful education is making sure students have the supplies they need. "It's sending a message to the students of this county that there are people in this community who care and put their money where their mouth is and really want to see them succeed and achieve and share in the journey to that higher level," said school superintendent Dr. Thomas Lockamy.
Publix, Savannah Mitsubishi and Cumulus Broadcasting were among the participating sponsors for this year's Tools for Schools campaign.
