As school begins, school supply lists are made available to students and parents, but not all students are able to arrive the first day of school with the items required to put them on the road to success; some parents simply can’t afford to purchase the items needed.

To assist those students, Partners In Education (PIE), in partnership with Craven County Schools will have bright yellow school buses and colorful totes set up in front of the three Walmart Stores in Craven County on August 19, 2017, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm. Generous shoppers are encouraged to donate school supplies for students who have been identified as in-need by their school counselors.

Volunteers from the schools and our community were on hand and honking the horn of the school bus each time a donation was made as a way of showing thanks.

For those who can’t make it to the event, many businesses have agreed to be drop-off locations, and will collect items until Thursday, August 17.  They are:

 

• Havelock Chamber of Commerce at 201 Tourist Center Drive,
• BB&T at 375 S. Front Street,
• Century 21 Zaytoun-Raines at 312 S. Front St.,
• Wells Fargo at 401 S. Front St.,
• Sound Bank at 1801 S. Glenburnie Rd.,
• Edward Jones Investments – Dan Roberts at 301 S. Front St.,
• Chevrolet of New Bern at 3405 Dr. M.L. King, Jr., Blvd.,
• Cravin’ Wine at 1706 A Hwy 70 East,
• Anya’s Alterations at 1706 B Hwy 70 East,
• Dun’ Artie Salon and Day Spa at 1706 C Hwy 70 East,
• Nationwide Insurance at 1706 D Hwy 70 East,
• Taqueria San Luis at 1706 E Hwy 70 East, and
• Craven County Schools at 3600 Trent Rd.

 

Last year, through the generosity of our community, Partners In Education received $24,900 in donations and was able to assist over 611 students. Based on this success, Partners In Education is recruiting the help of all our community partners so that we are able to reach even more students this year.

You can donate to Stuff the Bus throughout the year! Contact Darlene Brown at 514-6321 to arrange a drop-off! She will be sure that your donated supplies get in the hands of those most in-need by working with the principals at our Craven County schools.

Dear PIE Supporters:

You have probably seen our tag line, “Together, We Are Partners.”  What makes that so important is that together we are strong, together we  grow the seeds for the success of our beginning teachers through a new Beginning Teachers’ Cottage and Store.  Together we empower creative and innovative projects in the classroom, Stuff the Bus for our in-need students, and giveaway thousands of books as a result of our Book Drive.  I ask that as you decide to support PIE, your local education foundation, you take a moment and review the attached brochure highlighting just a few of our achievements this past school year.  From a successful PIE Spring Luncheon with Governor Hunt as our guest speaker, to the many grants and programs funded through your generous donations, we can truly say “Together We Are Partners!”

Teachers, as a member of PIE, you will receive one extra point on your total grant score for PIE Grants, International Paper Grants, and the Twin Rivers Artists’ Assn. Grants.   Give your completed membership form to your School’s Ambassador, or you can send it directly to Darlene Brown at Central Services, 3600 Trent Road, New Bern, NC  28562.   Note:  To learn more about our grants and the due dates, or to apply for one of our grants, go to www.CravenPartners.com/grants.  Note:  all grants are available on Google Docs and can be accessed by going to the PIE website, under Programs.
