Cayce, SC (Paul Kirby) The Cayce Moose Lodge #462 is holding a backpack school supply drive for our local elementary schools. They are also collecting old cellphones, working or not, for recycling. The actual drive is planned for Thursday, August 17, at the lodge which is located at 1541 Old Dunbar Rd. just outside of South Congaree and Cayce in West Columbia.
Much of the donated supplies will go to students at Congaree Elementary School. They are trying to fill book bags with what the school has asked for on their official list of supplies for the upcoming year.
Jean Amick, one of the coordinators of this effort, said that have already donated bookbags and others have given supplies. She said that any and all help is appreciated, and this will be an ongoing effort throughout the year.
For more information about how you can help, contact Amick at (803) 755-1045 or the lodge at (803) 955-1045.
