This includes office supplies, furniture, computers, laptops, and basic school supplies. We would like to thank PWC NOW member Sherry Feggins, who helped this become a successful school drive for those schools in need! Those schools are: Minnieville Elementary, Dale City Elementary, and Dean Kilby Schools. On Sept. 11, volunteers are needed to help load 3 large U-HAUL trucks! We also have three more schools we will have chosen for April (those details will be released as we get closer to April 2016!)
