Dolores Craven, our Education Chairperson, and her committee were busy in September delivering the club’s contribution checks and supplies to area schools through its “Tools for Schools” project.
Five schools including Ocean Drive Elementary School, Riverside Elementary School, Waterway Elementary, North Myrtle Beach Middle School Official Site, and North Myrtle High School each received a $500 contribution to be used as emergency funding for students. The club also delivered much needed school supplies (estimated at approximately $1,000) collected from club members. “Tools for School” is an ongoing project the club has been doing for over 15 years.
These contributions are possible because each year our community attends and supports our two biggest fundraisers, our Christmas Tour of Homes in December and Purses with Purpose Charity Event in April. Our club also gives scholarships to NMB High School students in May each year.
