Clair Lane Back 2 School Fair

Mrs. Lane’s organization has been in existence for a total of 11 years and has serviced the Carolinas for the past 5 years. Mrs. Lane and Vianne Howitt are the two people who make children’s back to school experience a smooth transition.
This year, a total of 800 bags were donated and filled with school supplies from the youngest kindergartener to the high school student. The bags were filled with paper, pencils, pencil boxes, and a variety of other school supplies.
The YMCA provided information to parents along with the children about various programs offered; Carolinas Medical Center provided body fat analysis, blood pressure checks and other assorted health information. Reedy Creek Nature Preserve had a few animals for the children to pet as well. A barber was also on hand to give free hair cuts to those in need.
Volunteers from Ridge Road Middle School were on hand to register the kids for their bags and direct them to the different vendors throughout the park.
Along with donations from local businesses, personal donations came from community members. The event provided not only school supplies but brought people from all over the community together for a fun filled day.
As a reminder, Our Foundation for Children, are collecting donations (school supplies, back packs, monetary fund, or your time) year round.
