School Supplies from Hootie & the Blowfish Delivered to Teachers

November 5, 2019
  • SC for Ed, RCPEP, and the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation teamed up in September to collect school supplies. Prior to the September 12th concert, SC for Ed reached out to hundreds of teachers to get a list of the types of supplies that would be needed throughout the school year. Hootie & the Blowfish then worked very hard to get the word out to their fans. It worked. The Hootie fanbase showed up and overwhelmed us with supplies and generosity. We literally filled a school bus with thousands of supplies.

    After cataloguing and organizing all the supplies, we got to the fun part -- distributing them to our awesome teachers in Richland One and Two. SC for Ed and RCPEP distributed supplies to Richland Two teachers during their professional development at Ridgeview High School and then to Richland One teachers during professional development at W.J. Keenan High School.

    The teachers and administrators were so excited and thankful for the supplies. RCPEP and SC for Ed have additional funding that will be used to purchase even more supplies as the school year continues.
