Palmetto Pencil Project


Supply Drive Dates: July 1-31, 2024

South Carolina ETV and Public Radio is hosting a state-wide classroom supply drive for South Carolina's teachers. Regional studios located across the state will serve as collection locations and will assist in dropping off items to the local school districts. 

The Palmetto Pencil Project aims to collect a variety of essential supplies that directly benefit teachers in the classroom and enhance the learning experience for students. Donations include evergreen classroom items that allow teachers the ability to pull from these items all year long.

Individuals and communities are encouraged to donate supplies to assist teachers in the classroom such as dry-erase board markers and erasers, post-it notes, pencils chart paper with lines, good job stickers, magnetic clips and thumb tacks. Also, see linked supply lists from participating school districts below.
