Mt. Pleasant community donates school supplies

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

Folks in Mount Pleasant spent part of their Saturday out helping get kids ready for the start of the school year.

The Phillips Community near Clements Ferry road hosted a back-to-school giveaway.

"They donate their time and they donate their school supplies," Phillips Community Association President Richard Habersham said. "And give back to the kids not because they needed it...but because it's an investment."

The event originally started as a community project 17 years ago at a time when members of the community had problems keeping the area clean. The kids would help clean up around town, and the community would give back. 

Organizers say it's a great way to start the school year and give back to the kids who help keep the community clean.
