Hundreds of Colleton County School District students and their families attended the 13th annual Back to School Bash on Aug. 29, receiving free school supplies and fresh food just in time for the start of school year Sept. 8.
The Back to School Bash took place at the CCSD District Office (500 Forest Circle, Walterboro), from 8-11 a.m.
Following Centers for Disease Control and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control guidelines, district employees and community volunteers delivered book bags full of school supplies directly to event attendee’s cars, placing them in the vehicles’ trunks. All event staff who delivered the book bags to cars were masked and gloved.
The Lowcountry Foodbank also attended the event to distribute boxes of food to participants.
School begins Sept.8.
