School Supply Drive

The Weatherford ISD Education Foundation and the Jerry Durant Auto Group are teaming up to host a school supply drive for Weatherford ISD students from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13 at Jerry’s GMC. The event features free hotdogs and soft drinks courtesy of Wallace Insurance and a live remote broadcast by QXFM 89.5 with Dave Cowley and Don Allen.

The Foundation’s School Supply Closet has been open since 2003 and now serves more than 1,000 students each year. Parents needing supplies for their children should contact their campus principal, counselor, or teacher. Requests are handled anonymously and supplies are available throughout the school year.

“Up to 800 students begin the school year with brand new school supplies because of the Education Foundation’s program. This year, we expect an increase in the number of requests for supplies due to the economy. We’re very grateful to Jerry’s for hosting our school supply drives and for their continued support of this program,” said Charlotte LaGrone, Director of Community Relations and the Education Foundation for Weatherford ISD.

If you would like to contribute school supplies you may bring them to Jerry’s GMC on August 13 or to the Weatherford ISD District Services Building located at 1100 Longhorn Drive.

For more information about the School Supply Closet, call Charlotte LaGrone at 817-598-2956.
