NCSO's annual Back to School giveaway begins

School may have just ended, but the Newton County Sheriff’s Office Annual Back to School Supply Giveaway is underway.

The NCSO is partnering with The Salvation Army, A.K.A. Sorority Inc, Baxter International and The Covington News for its annual supply giveaway, with distribution on July 26, forom noon-5 p.m. at 2171 Elm Street (The old Covington Academy School).

Throughout the last two years, the Annual Back to School Supply Drive Giveaway has resulted in the distribution of more than 3,000 book bags filled with school supplies for students in Newotn County. Through combined efforts, it is hoped to provide for even more children with the supplies and materials they need to start the school year off right. This year, the goal is to provide for 4,000 students, and support is needed.

This is a great opportunity to help many families and children in Newton County go back to school prepared. In order to have the greatest impact possible, support is requested through a tax-deductible contribution. The NCSO, Salvation Army, A.K.A. Sorority, Baxter and The Covington News encourages you to consider one of several sponsorships to be listed on the NCSO website’s Donor List as well as the Back to School Supply event banner. To gain this access you can be a platinum sponsor for $1,000, Gold for $500, Silver for $250 or Bronze for $100.

All other contributors will be recognized in The Covington News soon thereafter the event.
