School Supplies Needed for 250 Students in Schley
The Schley County Public Health Department and the Schley County Family
Connection Collaborative are teaming up to host a Back To School Bash
for 250 low income students in Schley County. The event will be held on Saturday,
July 22, 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon at
the Schley County Public Health Department. Free refreshments will be
available and there will be several vendors and local service providers
on hand to discuss the many free health programs and services that are
available in Schley County. A Certified Passenger Safety Technician
will be on hand to conduct free car seat safety checks.
Parents, grandparents and guardians may sign up students for the free
schools supplies at the Schley County Health Department or at Schley
County DFCS. Parents and their children must be present at the event
in order to receive the supplies. Any supplies that are left over will
be given to the Schley County School System.
The Schley County Family Connection Collaborative encourages all Schley
County parents to pick up a few extra school supplies and donate them
for the event. You may drop off supplies at the Schley County Public
Health Department or Schley County DFCS.
We are also in need of bottled water, granola bars, and other healthy
snacks to distribute during the event.
