Newton County Sheriff’s Office hosted its 3rd Annual Back to School Supply Giveaway in conjunction with The Salvation Army, Washington Street Community Center and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Chi Tau Omega Chapter. NCSO is the
successor host to Main Street Covington. The program was founded on the belief that all children deserve to start their first day of school well prepared. The goal of the drive is to provide students with the necessary supplies they need so that they are equipped to receive an education.

This year, 2,925 students were provided with book bags filled with school supplies for PreK thru 12 graders. Last year, 1,600 students were serviced. The drive has grown tremendously. Several agencies and organizations were present to lend their assistance to the many families who came out.

Back to School photo Thanks to the Newton County Recreation Department for allowing us the use the Turner Lake Complex as the distribution site.

We could not have responded to the needs of our community without the support of more than 125 individual volunteers and more than 23 representatives from youth and adult community organizations. We extend a heartfelt thanks to all who so generously donated time, money and an assortment of supplies to make the drive successful. The thoughtful donations not only enabled us to provide for our students, it made a dramatic impact on each of our families and demonstrated generosity and kindness.
