It’s back to school time already! Each year Westside Democrats help with back to school supplies as a part of our “Dems Care” for community effort. This year there are two opportunities to get involved:
Conway’s Back to School Bash
This will be a rain or shine event (Mr. Bellamy is working on a rain location if needed).
Sandridge Community Center
3428 Cates Bay Rd.
Conway, SC 29527map
You can help!
• Help with set up (between 9:30am and 10am)
• Get involved with voter registration and education
• Contribute school supplies. (see the list below)
• Provide a check payable to “Westside Democrats” and drop the check off at the Conway office.
Freedom Reader Scholars
In past years Westside Dems have partnered with Tracy Bailey’s Freedom Readers organization to provide school supplies for the 15 or so Conway participants who meet weekly at Huckabee Heights. Your generous contributions in the past helped fill book bags with most of the supplies these elementary school scholars need to get off to a successful school year. Supplies will be distributed to the Conway Freedom Readers later in August. Monetary and school supply donations can be dropped off at the HCDP office in Conway.
Please make checks payable to: Westside Democrats and drop off at the Conway office.
Please consider getting involved this year. Back to school supplies are on sale at many stores in our area, so now is the perfect time for the shoppers among you to help these children.
