Sevier County School System Donation Information:
Thank you for your concern, kindness and support to the Sevier County Schools during this devastating time in our county. It has been determined due to the magnitude and diversity of the needs that monetary donations would be more manageable than in kind gifts of clothing and school supplies.
Donations may be made to Sevier County Schools, 226 Cedar Street, Sevierville, Tennessee 37862 and will be distributed directly to those impacted through our schools. If you would like to designate a particular school please do so. Again, thank you. We urge our friends to continue to pray for us and return to our beautiful county and mountains in the future.
Pasta for Pennies
Hi Teachers and Families!
The final countdown to our Pennies for Patients campaign has begun! In PE next week your children will get the introduction to Pennies for Pasta. Make a note to ask him or her about it. A parent letter will also be heading your way as well, so be sure to check your child’s backpack. You also will receive a collection box to transport change to school.
Help prepare your child for the campaign kickoff by taking these simple steps:
Practice with your child how to ask family members, friends, and neighbors to consider making a donation. Donations can be made via your child’s online giving page, his or her classroom or school page, or as cash donations. To learn more about giving online, click here.
If you’ve haven’t started collecting spare change at home, now’s the time. Designate a change jar and start adding to it. When your child brings home his or her change box, you’ll be that much closer to filling it up.
Pennies for Patients makes an even bigger difference than you may think.
If you don’t know someone with a blood cancer, you probably know someone who has battled another form of cancer. More than 40% of new cancer therapies approved by the FDA between 2000 and 2015 were first approved for blood cancer patients but now help others as well. Working together on our Pennies for Patients campaign, we can turn our spare change into real help for real people!
Our school is collecting new or clean socks for students in need. If you are clearing out your sock drawer, please consider donating them!
