Local Businesses Donate Back to School Supplies to Help Lexington District One Students 

September 15, 2019

September 15, 2019: The Lexington One Educational Foundation was fortunate to receive many back to school supplies this year to assist students in need. The foundation staff worked with a number of local businesses that held school supply drives in an effort to assist with students’ back to school needs. Accordingly, these groups then donated all of these items to the Foundation so that Lexington One social workers could give them to students with high financial need. 

Donated items included colorful backpacks, notebooks, composition notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, dividers, notebook paper and more. 

The businesses that were kind to think of our Lexington District One students included the following: 

  • Carolina Chrome Magazine 
  • Carolina Physical Therapy 
  • First Community Bank 
  • Leadership Lexington County Alumni 
  • Mid-Carolina Electric Cooperatives 
  • Publix Supermarkets 
  • Spectrum – Reach 

If you know an individual or company that may wish to support Lexington County School District One through our Educational Foundation endeavors or events, please contact Julie Anderson Washburn, foundation executive director, at 803-821-1008 or jwashburn@lexington1.net. It’s only through the generosity of many that the Educational Foundation can assist and support Lexington District One students!
