Georgetown Gives: School Supply Wish List

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is with this quote in mind that we are encouraging those who can give to help out those who are in need at Georgetown Elementary.  During this tough economic time in our nation we have all heard tales of those who have to get by on much less.  Getting by on less often means not being able to afford back to school supplies for many families.  If you can afford to give please feel free to check out the list of items we are in need of and send/bring in the items to school marked Georgetown Gives when we return to school.  Our goal is to provide every child in need the necessary back to school items to help them be a success at Georgetown Elementary.
