A local group of young professionals has announced the launch of the Better Stamford School Supply Drive. This supply drive will benefit the students and teachers of the Stamford Independent School District for the 2018-2019 school year.
Members of the Oreana Communications team, Jessica Decker and Emily Burds, have joined forces with Kassidy Martin of Central Texas Farm Credit-Haskell to launch this initiative. They hope to ensure that the students and teachers of Stamford have the tools they need for success.
“We are very excited about this initiative to help enrich the lives of our students and teachers here in Stamford. Education is vital today and we want to ensure the next generation is primed for success both now and in the future,” said Jessica Decker, president of Oreana Communications.
With the support of Mayor James Decker, the group is seeking donations for the Supply Drive. Supplies that are needed include: markers, crayons, pencils, erasers, dry erase markers, composition notebooks, highlighters, Kleenex, bottles of hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.
The donation deadline is Friday, August 10th. Drop-off locations include: SGDA Law Firm in Stamford, Decker Capital Partners, Noteworthy/New Stamford American, Stamford Star and the Chamber of Commerce/Economic Development Corporation Offices.
Monetary donations can be sent to Oreana Communications at P.O. Box 7, Stamford, TX 79553, or dropped off at SGDA Law Firm.
