Register of Deeds Office Collects School Supplies For Homeless Children

Jun 20, 2018

The Register of Deeds office is holding its annual school supply drive for homeless Cumberland County school children through Aug. 1. Individuals, businesses, groups and churches are encouraged to give.

 

The Register of Deeds office would like to collect supplies to fill 800 book bags to be donated to the approximately 650 homeless children in county schools, as well as 150 additional bags for homeless relief events and the American Red Cross to help families who have experienced a disaster.

 

Donated items can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Register of Deeds office in Room 114 of the Cumberland County Courthouse, 117 Dick St. The deadline to drop off items is Aug. 1.

 

The following school supplies are needed: pencils, pens, notebooks, rulers, composition books, folders, notebook paper, pencil sharpeners, erasers, glue sticks, crayons, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand sanitizer and toothbrush cases.

 

In addition to school supplies, gift cards or cash donations will be accepted. However, checks cannot be accepted. Once all the school supplies are collected, they will be turned over to the Fayetteville Police Department and Cumberland County Schools for distribution. The Register of Deeds office would like to fill bags for each homeless school student in the county.

 

“We would like to thank everyone for their support in the past and thank them for their consideration again this year,” said Register of Deeds Lee Warren.
