Horry Electric Cooperative’s WIRE (Women Involved in Rural Electrification) group is collecting school supplies for local elementary school children.
Collecting ‘Back to School’ supplies is an annual project for the group and this is the eighth year they have collected items ranging from pens, pencils and scissors to notebooks, notepaper and rulers.
“Two schools are selected as recipients each year, ” says Susan Brown, executive assistant for the cooperative. “This year,” she reports, “our collected supplies will go to students attending Homewood Elementary and Loris Elementary schools.” The supplies collected will be divided evenly between the two schools.
Members and others in the community interested in donating school supplies are asked to please drop them off at the Cooperative’s main office on Cultra Road in Conway.
Donations will be accepted until Friday, August 7, 2015.
WIRE was created as a nonprofit organization to foster interest in and understanding of the rural electric program and to improve the quality of life in rural areas. The efforts of WIRE members go beyond scholarships and fundraising to touch the lives of many people across the Palmetto State.
WIRE dues are $7.00 per year. If you are a member of Horry Electric Cooperative, you are invited to join! For more information, contact Susan Brown, WIRE coordinator, at 369-6323 or email@example.com
