WAVES 4 K.I.D.S. Provides New Backpacks and School Supplies

Over 200 Brunswick County children and teens being served through the Department of Social Services will receive new Land’s End Backpacks and school supplies from WAVES 4 K.I.D.S.

Focus Broadband provided $2500 and Brunswick Electric contributed $2000 with the remaining money donated by individuals and WAVES Summertime Fun event.

“We know how important it is for kids to feel good at school and not be embarrassed by their backpacks or lack of school supplies,” explains Noel Nadol, WAVES vice president and chair of the backpack program.

“Our backpacks vary in color and style depending on the different age groups. They are filled with supplies to start the school year based on grade level needs”, he continued. 

Thanks to the generosity of donors, WAVES provides a range of supplies from crayons for younger children to calculators for high school students.

The success of 2023 Summertime Fun Fundraising Event helps us continue our partnership with the Brunswick County Department of Social Services, supporting foster children and children living in difficult situations. 

 

In addition to raising funds to help K.I.D.S., a great time was had by everyone who attended, from listening and dancing to Band of Oz, to enjoying the great food, to participating in exciting and fun auctions!

 

We could not do this without the generous contributions from sponsors, donors and guests. 

Thank you.
