Almost as soon as the request for beach and bath towels was published in Tidelines, donations began to arrive. With just a little publicity, it took less than a week for the Seabrook and Kiawah Island residents to donate enough towels for each student to have one of their own to use outdoors for social distancing. This picture is a class of first graders using their towels and saying thank you to their friends from Seabrook and Kiawah.
Earlier this summer, we collected monetary contributions to buy school supplies for the children. Classrooms are now stocked with enough traditional consumables such as paper, pencils, crayons and headphones, to begin the new school year. I continue to be amazed at the generosity of my neighbors. As this “school year like no other” progresses, there may be other yet unthought of opportunities to help our local elementary school and Support Mt. Zion Kids will be ready to ask for your gracious assistance.
