OSHR to make Pender County delivery Wednesday in support of Governor Cooper’s third annual School Supply Drive


WHO: OSHR Director Barbara Gibson will deliver more than two dozen boxes of school supplies to students of Burgaw Elementary School, where Hurricane Florence caused considerable damage and temporarily displaced hundreds of students and dozens of staff in September 2018.

WHAT: Governor Roy Cooper called upon state employees and communities to donate school supplies to help teachers and students prepare for a successful school year.

WHEN: 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28. Following a tour of the facility with Dr. Steven Hill, Superintendent of Pender County Schools, and Burgaw Elementary Principal Stephen Buchanan, Gibson will share a favorite children’s book when she reads to young students.

WHERE: Burgaw Elementary School, 400 N. Wright St., Burgaw, NC 28425; phone: 910-259-0145
