Caring Council School Supplies Drive

AUGUST 1, 2018


Benefiting North Myrtle Beach Elementary Schools

North Myrtle Beach Elementary (formerly Riverside Elementary) … Waterway Elementary … Ocean Drive Elementary

August 3rd – 15th

Sponsored by the Barefoot Caring Council


Hello Barefoot Residents!

Our North Myrtle Beach elementary students will be returning to school on August 22nd! Once again, many students in our community do not have the means to buy their school supplies, and our teachers cannot afford to purchase the everyday supplies needed for their classrooms! Every year, our Barefoot Residents have been very generous donating school supplies for needy children in grades kindergarten through 5th grade! We are asking for your donations again this year! Donations will be collected between August 3rd and August 15th by the Barefoot Caring Council (FYI: South Carolina Tax Free Weekend is August 3-5…a great time to purchase school supplies).


Donation drop-off points:

Single Family members of the Barefoot Resident Club please use donation boxes provided in the library at the Barefoot Resident’s Club

Multi-family & Dye homes please use donation boxes provided at the Ponderosa office


Thank you in advance for your donations! When we deliver supplies to the school, we always include a card with our donations to let everyone know that the donations are provided by our Barefoot residents!
