Back-To-School Supplies Drive 2023

2023 Barefoot Back-To-School Supplies Drive

Benefitting North Myrtle Beach Elementary Schools

North Myrtle Beach Elementary, Waterway Elementary, Ocean Drive Elementary

August 1st – 16th

Sponsored by the Barefoot Caring Council

Hello Barefoot Residents!

Our North Myrtle Beach elementary students will be returning to school soon! Once again, many students in our community do not have the means to buy their school supplies, and our teachers cannot afford to purchase the everyday supplies needed for their classrooms! Every year, our Barefoot Residents have been very generous donating school supplies for children in need in grades K-5. We are asking for your donations again this year! Donations will be collected between August 1st and August 16th by the Barefoot Caring Council. FYI: South Carolina Tax Free Weekend is August 4-6th, a great time to purchase these supplies.

Here is the list for this school year:

  • Tissues
  • Wipes
  • Pencils (sharpened if possible)
  • Erasers
  • Glue sticks (no bottles of glue)
  • Scissors
  • Colored Pencils
  • Markers
  • Crayons
  • Highlighters
  • Dry erasers
  • Earbuds
  • Marble composition books (no spiral notebooks)
  • Nylon pencil cases
  • Sandwich bags (assorted sizes)

Please DO NOT Purchase:

  • Spiral notebooks
  • Loose leaf paper
  • Rulers
  • Compasses
  • Folders
  • Glue bottles (glue sticks only)

The schools are starting hygiene classes & requested the following items as well:

  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Dental Floss
  • Soap
  • Combs
  • Hairbrushes
  • Hair picks

Drop Off Location:
Please drop all donations off at Eileen Roddy’s house, located across the street from the Residents’ Club at 5804 Spotted Owl Landing.  *Please do not drop off after the 16th, as items will already have been delivered to the schools*

Thank you in advance for your donations! When we deliver the supplies to the school we always include a card with our donations to let everyone know that the donations are provided by our Barefoot residents!
