CLEVELAND, Miss. (WJTV) – As students returned to school this week, staff members with Delta State University helped organize a school supply drive to help provide students with items for class.
According to organizers, offices and departments across campus all pitched in to purchase items listed on school supply lists for schools within the Cleveland School District. Contributions were also made by First Presbyterian Church, First United Methodist Church and First Baptist Church, all of Cleveland.
A total of 830 school supply items, including crayons, disinfectant spray and wipes, paper, folders and backpacks, were donated.
“The Cleveland School District (CSD) Curriculum Department was beyond delighted to have Delta State’s staff consider us as recipients for the school supply donations that will benefit students and teachers across the district,” said CSD Instructional Math Coach and DSU alumna Holly Wells ‘14, ’16. “We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity shown by Delta State and the donors involved.”
