Governor’s school supply drive underway

The fourth Governor’s School Supply Drive is now open and will run until December 16.

Like so many annual events, public health precautions have required the drive to go fully online at ncpta.org/index.php/governors-school-supply-drive-2020/.

This year features a new partner in the North Carolina Parent Teacher Association. On average, teachers spend about $500 of their own money on supplies for their classrooms each year.

Donations made through the portal noted above can be directed to a specific school district or charter school or to a general fund that will be divided among counties with the greatest need.

Governor Cooper’s School Supply Drive is offered in partnership between the North Carolina Governor’s Office, the North Carolina Business Committee on Education and its partners, North Carolina PTA, VolunteerNC, State Employees Credit Union, and Communities In Schools of North Carolina.
