Operation: School Supplies

Providing children with new school supplies to start school with confidence!




The beginning of a new school year should be a time of eagerness and excitement. Yet for many poor children it can be embarrassing if they do not have adequate backpacks and school supplies. The Operation: School Supplies program provides children with the supplies they need to start the school year with confidence.

This program assisted 400 children in 2020.

If you would like to contribute to the Operation: School Supplies program as an individual or part of a group, please contact Lisa Huffman at 803-309-0436 or Lisa.Huffman@uss.salvationarmy.org. We are accepting school supplies and backpacks through Monday, August 2, 2021.
