2021 PVES School Supplies Drive 

Back to School


The Outreach Committee will again be collecting much-needed school supplies for student and teacher use at Pleasant View Elementary School in nearby Morgan County.  These will be given to children whose parents cannot supply them or used to replenish the teachers’ supplies.  Please purchase only from among these items as school storage space is limited.  We will collect your donated items through Sunday, August 15 to deliver by the start of school. 


Please note that it is difficult for the committee to handle cash donations since we cannot give them to the school.  We request that anyone interested should arrange to purchase supplies rather than donate cash if at all possible.  Grocery stores, Target, Walmart, Michaels etc. all have summer school supply sales and one can order online for quick and easy pick-up at their door or home delivery.
