Community Helping Children – School Supply Drive
Based on last years success, Dickison Pharmasave is pleased to host the 2nd Annual Community Helping Kids event with a back to school supply drive.
This event will have a Nissan vehicle donated for usage from Trevors Nissan as the community will try to fill the vehicle with school supplies. The community is encouraged to drop off school supplies towards this campaign. In addition Dickison Pharmasave will also be hosting a lunch BBQ from BBQ from 11:30 to 1 with all proceeds going to buy school supplies.
The event will take place in Downtowns Miramichi Newcastle Business District in the Queen Elizabeth Square on Wednesday August 27th from 9 am to 4 pm.
Stan Knowles, owner of Dickison Pharmasave states” This event was very successful last year and was very much appreciated by the school administers. This year we will donate to the Anglophone North School District (former District 16) for their disbursement to the children that need the supplies. Every child should be provided a positive approach to learning, and we are able to assist with providing some basic school supplies.”
Supplies can be dropped off prior to August 27th at the store at 135 Henry St. and all supplies will be transferred into the Nissan, as the community tries to fill the Nissan. Pens, paper, book bags all supplies are welcome.
