STUFFING BOOK BAGS
This initiative distributes school supplies, including book bags, bound composition books, paper, pencils, flash drives and head sets to the youth we serve.
In August 2019, 141 book bags were delivered to students identified through Social Workers with the Department of Social Services (DSS).
Requests, on School Supply Requisition Forms, are presented to WAVES 4 K.I.D.S. They denote the age and sex of the child and the supplies requested in accordance with the child's school requirements. The DSS supervisor reviews the request to ensure other funds are not available and forwards the request to WAVES for processing.
For Brunswick County children, our goal is to provide youth in difficult situations necessary tools to help them succeed in the classroom. It allows them to focus their energies on learning, without the fear of having insufficient supplies.
