SCI Benner Township organized a school supplies drive to benefit the students who live in Centre County. Social Work Department staff partnered with CentreSafe, a local agency focused on empowering survivors of sexual or domestic violence. They provide the following services: crisis intervention, 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter, counseling, support groups, education and advocacy. CentreSafe assists victims who have fled their homes because of domestic violence. With the school year upon us, staff wanted to give back to the community by helping families with school-aged children by purchasing new school supplies.

Benner Township staff donated an abundance of school supplies. Thirteen backpacks were fully packed with supplies such as: pencil boxes, binders, notebooks, folders, pencils, crayons, markers, colored pencils, pens, pencil sharpeners, erasers, glue and glue sticks, scissors, rulers and hand sanitizer. CentreSafe distributed the backpacks and extra supplies to students in Kindergarten–12th grade in the community. The Back-To-School Drive was a huge success!
