I personally spent $180 in school supplies between two kids. The total shocked me! Backpacks, lunch boxes, hot and cool containers, notebooks, pens, highlighters, pencils, markets, colored pencils, folders, and paper seems like it should have added up to less. And when I walked away from the Target cash register, I remember thinking, “I know this has to hurt a lot of families.” HTC, the Kiwanis Club of Conway, and Waccamaw Publishers agree.
On Wednesday, August 17, HTC will host their 12th Annual Back to School FREE School Supplies Event at each of their branch locations beginning at 8:00 a.m. (10:00 a.m. for the HTC located in the food court at Coastal Grand Mall). Bags containing pencils, rulers, erasers, pencil bags, notebooks and more will be distributed on a first come first served basis and quantities are limited. Note, there will be no supplies given out at the Socastee location due to construction.
For more information about this event, you can visit the HTC website.
