Help Us Stuff the Bus With School Supplies for Local Kids

July 25, 2018

NHRMC is partnering with Communities in Schools of Cape Fear to help Stuff the Bus, a back-to-school supply drive that supports at-risk youth across New Hanover and Pender counties.

With the help of community partners, Communities in Schools collects school supplies and delivers them to counselors at each public school across both counties, who distribute them to students in need throughout the year. This is an easy way to support all schools in our community. Consider picking up a few items during your next shopping trip, or shopping order.
