A School Year Like No Other

The Volunteer Coordinators for Mt. Zion Elementary School once again ask Kiawah and Seabrook residents to open their hearts and their pocketbooks and be as generous as they have been in the past by contributing to the purchase of supplies for the Mt. Zion students and teachers.

While the Charleston County School District works to determine when it will be safe enough to open schools for in-person instruction, it is also in the process of determining how many parents will be sending their children to school for in-person instruction and how many will elect to keep their children at home. Whatever the final decisions are, we know that the Mt. Zion teachers and students will need our support obtaining necessary school supplies. The best way we can support Mt. Zion during the COVID-19 pandemic is by collecting money from our generous donors and then purchasing the necessary items online to be delivered directly to the school.

Please make your checks payable to “Support Mt. Zion Kids” and mail them to Wendy Kulick at 38 Marsh Edge Lane, Kiawah Island, SC 29455. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Wendy by phone (843.509.6276) or e-mail (wkulick@bellsouth.net). Elaine Davis and Lucy Hoover, the other two volunteer coordinators for Mt. Zion, both live on Seabrook. They would also be happy to answer any questions you might have. Elaine Davis can be reached at 843.768.2643 or ebdavis@comcast.net. Lucy Hoover can be reached at lucyhoover@gmail.com.

There are other ways you can support Mt. Zion Elementary School.

Register with stores that support education.
Another way we can help the students at Mt. Zion is by shopping at various participating stores. This program works no matter where you live. Just remember to ask your cashier at Harris Teeter to enter the school number “3455” into the register when you use your VIC card. By doing this, a portion of what you spend is donated to Mt. Zion Elementary each time you shop and purchase “Together in Education” items. If you have a Target credit card, you can register on the Target website for Mt. Zion Elementary. These businesses donate a portion of sales dollars to local schools.

Interested in being a volunteer with Mt. Zion teachers?
Working in classrooms or directly with individual students is perhaps the aspect of volunteering most impacted by COVID-19. No volunteers will be permitted in CCSD schools for at least the first semester. If there is a way to volunteer virtually, we will be sure to let you know!

On behalf of the entire Mt. Zion family, thank you in advance for your generous support.
