Working Together For A Brighter Day

United Way hosted a Back-To-School pizza party for the participants of Communities in Schools at the Chatham Community Library on Wednesday, August 17.  Each child received a backpack filled with the required materials specified by the supply list from their school and grade.  The staff of David Weekley Homes conducted a month-long supply drive for employees, customers and Briar Chapel residents to collect the backpacks and supplies.  They also donated custom-made pencil boxes which contained colored pencils, a pencil sharpener and a ruler.  In addition, students received new toothbrushes, which were donated by N. Rouse Wilson, DDS.  Everyone was treated to a pizza supper, which was well-received by all.  Over 60 backpacks were distributed.  The children were very appreciative of their news tools and all pledged to put forth their best effort for a successful school year of achievement and growth.
