CLARKSDALE – When school supplies run low, teachers often dip into their own paychecks to buy more. However, Coahoma Community College is trying to help eradicate that expense for local educators.

CCC’s Social Science Department has launched its Second Annual Mid-Year School Supply Drive that will benefit an elementary school in the Tallahatchie County area.

The drive, happening now through March 18, is open to all CCC faculty, staff, students, alumni as well as community members who would like to contribute.

“School supplies are running low in the spring and teachers often spend their own money to supply their classrooms,” said CCC Social Sciences Department Chair Barbara Boschert. “We thought this was a way we could give back.”

Boschert said the success of last year’s drive, which yielded dozens of supplies, inspired the department to host a second drive.

She encourages everyone to participate in this opportunity to give back to the community.

To contribute to the drive, drop off school supplies such as pencils, paper, glue, crayons, markers, hand sanitizer, and tissue to any instructor in the Social Science Department.

For questions, or for more information, contact Boschert at (662) 621-4677 or bboschert@coahomacc.edu .
