School Supply Drive

Altrusa International, Inc. of Waynesville and the Haywood Rotary Club team up to spearhead a drive to collect school supplies for needy children in Haywood County public schools every year on tax-free weekend. Residents are asked to pick up extra supplies as they shop during the tax-free weekend for back to school purchases.
All supplies and funds collected are distributed by the Haywood County Schools Foundation to students in need by the start of the school year.
