Back 2 School

IN 2014 Mayor Green saw a need in the community for some youth dealing with a lack of adequate school supplies. Numerous students in our community and surrounding area did not have school supplies and struggled with getting their class work done. Since then the Town of Awendaw has hosted its annual Back to School event helping children from the Awendaw and McClellanville area. With partners like Berkeley Electric Coop, churches, Town Council, Town staff, and many others, the Town has been able to provide fully packed book bags for our youth from Kindergarten to High School.  It is not just a time for giving back to the community but a time for fun and fellowship. 

Now the Town partners with the St James Santee Elementary school to provide school supplies for our area. Students of St James receive supplies through grants that the school receives. Other area students may receive supplies by completing an application at Awendaw Town Hall.  YOU MUST COMPLETE AN APPLICATION AT AWENDAW TOWN HALL TO PARTICIPATE!

Towards that goal, the Town of Awendaw also has a Youth Council that meets regularly to learn about their local government and community and to perform various community service projects in the area.
