Community Consolidated School District 181, the District 181 Foundation and the Rotary Club of Hinsdale are coming together in a community effort to support the devastating losses incurred by the Robeson County, North Carolina School District during Hurricane Florence.

As a result of the destruction caused by hurricane Florence, the school system was closed for several weeks due to hazardous road conditions as well as damage to schools and school facilities.  As one local resident stated, ‘There's so much devastation in this county. I don't know what's going to happen.’

To support our fellow educators and students, we’re asking our communities to donate school supplies from now to November 14th.  November 12-16 is National Education Week, a fitting designation for our schools to show that we have a heart for high-quality education not just in our own communities but nationwide.

Donations of goods or cash will be collected at all D181 schools during school hours and at  drop-off sites throughout the community:

All cash donations will be used to purchase school supply items. Our goal is for D181 schools to fill 1,000 book bags with school supplies that are deeply needed by Robeson County schools.
