Many Across Delmarva Donate School Supplies for Rising Tide

Posted: 08/09/2017 18:43:00 -04:00 Updated:

On Wednesday, people from all across Delmarva came out to Rising Tide locations to drop off school supplies for those in need.

Rising Tide is a year long campaign where WBOC and Sherwood of Salisbury will help various charities on Delmarva. August's Rising Tide is the fourth of the year, and all the supplies collected will go to the Salisbury Rotary Club and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware. Those organizations will in turn distribute the supplies to children who need them. 

"We often take for granted what we get when we go back to school," says Sherwood General Manager Patrick Shuey. "It's a great opportunity for us to send the kids off in a few weeks with new stuff, new backpacks, notebooks, everything you could imagine when you went back to school."

People dropped off supplies at Sherwood of Salisbury, Auto Outlet 99 in Cambridge, and the WBOC offices in Milton and Dover. From the very start, vans were filling up with various supplies. Donations came from individuals and community organizations alike.

"We always want to stay involved with kids in town and stay connected," says Milton Police Department Patrolman First Class Talon Taylor. "So if we can help out with book bags, then we'll do so."

Others pointed out the financial burden that school supplies can cause on some families.

"There are a lot of families that just can't do for five or six kids," says Connie Fisher of Milton. "I think it's important that the people that can step up." 

This Rising Tide's beneficiaries have a long history of service on Delmarva. The Salisbury Rotary Club is the oldest service club on the peninsula and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware is connected to 18 of the 20 school districts in the state. Last year, they served 30,000 kids in the first state, and thanks to your donations, that number can only go up.
