CareSouth Gives Out School Supplies To 300 Students

CareSouth Carolina gave out school supplies to a total of 300 students at its Back to School Drive-Thru Saturday, Aug. 15 at Dillon High School.

CareSouth Carolina hosted the Back-to-School Drive-Thru as part of its National Community Health Center Week celebration. For more than 40 years, CareSouth Carolina has served as a medical home — a place where people can experience healing, caring relationships — regardless of their personal circumstance. As a community health center, we understand our patients to be part of our family. We are part of their community, and we deliver a comprehensive set of services that meet the whole need — from pediatrics to pharmacy to community outreach — all under one roof.
“CareSouth Carolina appreciates Dillon High School’s collaboration in providing a safe and convenient site to distribute school supplies to children during this pandemic,” CareSouth Carolina Chief of Community Health Joe Bittle said. “We know that, especially this year, access to school supplies for students can be difficult for families to purchase and this is a way for us to show our care and support for our communities.”
Community Health Centers serve as the beacon of strength, service and care in their communities. In moments of pain and loss, they offer support and love. In moments of triumph, they offer hope and a vision for the future. Health centers serve 28 million patients a year and look to provide high-quality healthcare and education in the communities in which we serve.
