School Supplies In Need

School supplies needed for students who can't afford them. School supplies needed for students who can't afford them.

Children in Chatham County are still a few weeks away from school, but they're starting to stock up on school supplies. But unfortunately, not all families can afford them. That's why the St. Joseph's Candler Angels of Mercy are trying to help out.

For the tenth year in a row, they are holding fundraiser, collecting everything from clear back packs, to paper, markers, crayons, pens and pencils, among other things.

The supplies will go to at- risk children in area schools. "For some kids, it may be the only school supplies that they have. They just have so much fun, they get so excited. It kind of re-energizes you with their excitement. It means just so much to us and them," said Beverly Britt with the Angels of Mercy.

If you'd like to donate supplies, you can drop them off at the lobbies of St. Joseph's hospital on Mercy Boulevard, Candler hospital off Reynolds Street, or the East Bay Inn off Bay Street.
