[ARCHIVED] Hanover Youth Service Council Collects Over 11,700 Items in 2018 School Supply Drive

Thanks to the generosity of the Hanover County community, many local students started school this year with the tools they need to succeed. The Hanover Youth Service Council’s (HYSC) 19th annual School Supply Drive collected over 11,700 school supplies and 15 pre-package school supply kits.

The collected school supplies were distributed to all of Hanover County’s public schools.  Additional supplies have also been provided to non-profit agencies that serve children in need.

“Just as in past years, the public has been extremely generous in their support of this project,” said Lisa Adkins, Administrator for Hanover County Community Resources.  “It is rewarding to know that through this project, the youth within our Hanover Youth Service Council can be leaders in supporting peers and younger children in need throughout our community.”

This year’s donors and collection sites included County offices and libraries, the Hanover County Employee Association, Burkwood Swim & Racquet Club, Cold Harbor Ruritan Club, ACES, Covenant Woods, Ashland Christian Church, Atlee Community Church, Chenault Veterinary, Dunn’s Chapel, Righteous Outlaw Band, and Fire/EMS Station #6.  A live collection event was also held at the Atlee Kroger.

The Hanover Youth Service Council is a service group consisting of 35 Hanover County middle and high school students.  Their School Supply Drive is a signature project held each year.
