Peanuts to Pencils School Supply Bank
Early County School System would like to thank Early Co. HITS/CSO Program and the Pataula Center for Children for their recent donations to the Peanuts to Pencils Program. Peanuts to Pencils is a local school supply bank located at the Early County Family Connection Office. Throughout the school year, referrals are made for students who may be in need of school supplies. Referrals are processed and the Peanuts to Pencils School Supply Bank provides school supplies to many needy children in our school system. Donations to Peanuts to Pencils are vital to keeping this resource stocked and helping students throughout the school year. Early Co. HITS/CSO Program participated in Repack the Backpack, a school supply drive and graciously donated their proceeds to Peanuts to Pencils.
