Recognizing that the cost of school supplies is prohibitive for some families, this annual project ensures that students who attend Walkersville Schools and Walkersville Feeder Schools start the school year off right with needed school supplies.
The project relies on the generosity of the local community (churches, organizations, businesses and residents) to donate the needed supplies. GVCS provides funding for the purchase of supplies, where needed, should community donations fall short.
