Boys & Girls Club of Moultrie - Colquitt County receives over 500 new supplies
Members of the Boys & Girls Club of Moultrie - Colquitt County will now have over 500 new school supplies thanks to a local donation drive.
Over the past month, Windstream Communications in Moultrie has been collecting supplies to donate to the organization.
According to south Georgia Sales Manager Summer Hart, over fifty backpacks were collected along with lunch boxes, notebooks, pencils and many other supplies.
Moultrie - Colquitt County CEO Joseph Matchett says the supplies will allow students to succeed and start the school year off right.
"If a kid is not prepared, that definitely can delay their progress. Being able to provide this type of support is definitely helpful and appreciative," said Matchett.
According to Hart, the items collected total to well over a couple thousand of dollars.
The donation drive began the third week of July.
