Help Needed for a Good Start in School

The Beaufort Hyde County Partnership for Children needs your help to purchase supplies for children entering kindergarten this fall. This is the fourth year the partnership has worked to distribute boxes containing school supplies. They are in need of supplies such as books, special paper, small scissors and more. The partnership says they need to put together 600 boxes this year and are $13,000 short of their goal. Officials say the boxes need to be distributed in May. With all the materials, each box cost just over $30 to make.
