Governor’s School Supply Drive Extended Through January 16 Donate online through NCPTA to purchase supplies to support Public School Students, Teachers and Families Across North Carolina

Raleigh

The 4th Annual Governor’s School Supply Drive is being extended to encourage more donations for supplies to support North Carolina students and teachers. 

Public health precautions have required the drive to go fully online with donations collected through the North Carolina Parent Teacher Association, a new partner for this year’s drive. Visit ncsupplies.ncpta.org to make a donation now through January 16.

“Supporting students and schools in these challenging times takes just a few clicks and a few minutes,” Gov. Cooper said. “Kristin and I have made our personal contribution and we hope you can too.”

“Our children are remarkably resourceful and resilient, but they need your support during this difficult time. North Carolina PTA is proud to partner on this effort to make sure our children have the necessary school supplies,” Harold Dixon, president of North Carolina PTA. “Let’s rally together to defeat COVID-19 and lift up our students and schools.”
