Department of Public Safety employees around the state donated school supplies to North Carolina students as part of the Governor’s School Supply Drive. Secretary Eddie M. Buffaloe Jr. traveled to Randolph County and Asheboro City schools on Oct. 10 to donate supplies.
DPS offices across the state participated in the supply drive that ran from Aug. 1-31. Some DPS offices were able to donate to local schools by delivering supplies to area State Employees Credit Unions for distribution. Supplies sent to Randolph County were donated by DPS employees in Raleigh.
“I am extremely thankful for the countless donations made by DPS employees during the Governor’s School Supply Drive,” Buffaloe said. “Thanks to their selfless contributions, students throughout our state will be well prepared for academic success during the school year.”
School supplies were collected from the administrative office and facilities in the Raleigh area and then sorted before being delivered to Balfour and Liberty elementary schools.
Supplies that were the most requested were:
- Paper – all types, including copy paper
- Pens and pencils
- Crayons and markers
- Dry erase markers
- USB flash drives
- Spiral notebooks
- Sanitizing wipes
