Back To School Supply Giveaway
Back To School Supply Giveaway

Growing up, one of the most exciting moments about starting school again was back to school shopping. A time when kids have the opportunity to choose they’re new backpack, binder, folders, clothing, etc. Unfortunately, many of the youth in Cumberland County aren’t afforded this opportunity because of their financial status at home. The Dreamville Foundation would like to give these youth the opportunity to be “Set-up for Success”, providing them with essentials tools in preparation for a successful school year.
