At St. Lawrence Place, it is impossible to imagine the beginning of the school year without the support of our incredible community partners who work diligently to equip our students to go back to school.
This year, St. Lawrence Place received donations of supplies from the Sales & Marketing Council of the Columbia Homebuilders Association, Tracy & Friends Community Outreach, Palmetto Health staff, and the United Way of the Midlands Young Leaders Society.
Thanks to these groups, all SLP students have returned to school with a new backpack stocked with the supplies they need in the classroom. The supplies were distributed at our annual Back to School Bash, which included programs and community partner exhibits promoting academic engagement and success.
Because of the generosity of our contributors, we even have enough supplies to keep students stocked throughout the year and to provide for new families who move in after the beginning of the school year. Many thanks to everyone who donated!
