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.
2019-2020 School Year Distribution
School supplies distribution for the 2019-2020 school year took place Sunday, August 18th, at the second floor of the Walkersville Town Hall. Distribution hours were from 11:00am to 2:00pm. Doors opened promptly at 11:00am. At the close of distribution, 150 students from 72 families attending the Walkersville and Walkersville feeder schools received school supplies. Supplies were also provided to 6 students of the 72 families attending special schools outside of the Walkersville school district. Remaining school supplies were distributed to the Walkersville schools.
