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 200 children in 2017.
Many thanks to our friends at Innersole who provided new sneakers for all of the children!

If you would like to contribute to the Operation: School Supplies program as an individual or part of a group, please contact Sarah Newcomb at 803-309-0436 or We are accepting school supplies and backpacks through Friday, August 10, 2018.
