United Way School Supply Donations Help District Classrooms and Students

United Way School Supply Donations Help District Classrooms and Students
Posted on 08/08/2019

On Wednesday and Thursday, Jul. 30, and Aug. 1, the United Way delivered a full-size U-Haul truck full of school supplies for Robertson County Schools students!  Items were delivered to the Family Resource Center and the Teachers Center. 

 Thanks to the United Way, the district now has a stock of:

Glue Sticks

Scissors

Composition Books

Spiral Notebooks

Crayons (boxes of 24)

Pencils

Backpacks

…and so much more.

United Way Community Impact Manager Asailio “Ace,” Timmermeier said the district was a natural choice since the change in county United Way leadership changed. 

“United Way of Metropolitan Nashville transitioned to lead operations in Robertson County in January, 2019,” said Timmermeier.  “One of our focus areas is education, so it made perfect sense to stream supplies from our very successful Stuff the Bus Event in Davidson County to RCS to help get the school year off to a great start.”

In all, more than 700 backpacks full of school supplies were donated.  In addition, the number of glue sticks, scissors, etc. totaled more than 25,000 pieces.  

Timmermeier said the donation will be an annual event that she’s excited to be a part of.

“United Way is pleased to partner with Robertson County Schools to provide extra supplies to both students and teachers,: she said. “ Your teachers are tirelessly working to educate our future, the least we can do is facilitate the supplies necessary to prepare these children to learn.”

In acknowledging the sizeable donation, Director of Schools, Dr. Chris Causey said that in his opinion, there is no need for teachers or students to purchase any of these items for this school year. 

He expressed gratitude on behalf of the entire district, saying, “This truly is the largest amount of school supplies we have ever seen at one time and are so blessed that the United Way is helping us out in this cause.”
