Children are still in need of school supplies




To McDuffie County residents:

There is still time to help some of the highest-risk children in McDuffie County by making sure they are prepared for school. Currently, there are 49 children who are still in need of school supplies locally.

As you know, Partners for Success does not believe in just handing out free items without trying to better the families we serve. These families are working with PFS on parenting, budgeting, anger management and other issues. The families are from very volatile homes and need our support. Most families are also referred by DFCS, DJJ or the school system. These families are truly trying to make a difference in their homes.

Due to the limited donations this year, we are unable to purchase a pair of tennis shoes for each child like last year, even though the average price for over 200 shoes was only $6.75. Therefore, we are only asking for the required school supplies for the children that you choose to adopt. Please contact us today to see how you can help make a difference not only in your community, but in a child's life.

Sincerely,

Miriam H. Smith,

executive director,

McDuffie County Partners for Success Inc.
