Before the 2015-16 school year kicked off, teachers at East Coweta High School were treated to free school supplies and equipment that will make their work a bit easier and more productive. The supplies were collected during the recent School Supply Drive for teachers sponsored by United Way in Coweta County (a division of United Way of Greater Atlanta), which partnered with Communities In Schools of Coweta County for this year’s event. Above are Jennifer Young of United Way and Gina Weathersby, executive director of CIS of Coweta County. Both women expressed appreciation that the two organizations could partner in the project to help East Coweta teachers.
Local businesses and individuals donated binders, chart paper, markers, compasses, erasers, flash drives, graph paper, hand sanitizer, highlighters, loose leaf paper, mounting tape, paper towels, pencils, pens, Post-It Chart Paper and Post-its, rulers, sanitizing wipes, sheet protectors, staplers/staples, tissues, white board cleaner and white board markers.
The local businesses that served as collection points for donations were Cargill Meat Solutions, Hampton Inn, Piedmont Newnan Hospital, Piedmont Newnan Hospital Wellness Center, Senoia Cycle and The Southern Credit Union.
