Education Expo Supply Drive Tour

$845 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 34 people in 31 months
Education Expo began in 2014 with a goal in mind to raise school supplies for students. It first started off as a virtual event held in August of 2014 where college students at the University of South Carolina Upstate could go online and purchase textbooks and school supplies at an affordable price without having to go anywhere, very convinent.

In 2015, Delux Designs (DE), LLC and Stay On Go (SOG) teamed up with the help of Age Old and Topfloor Promotions LLC to expand the virtual event into an actual physical event where students could just come and pick up school supplies for the school year free of charge. The event was held Saturday, August 15, 2015 at the Gethsemane Baptist Church in Chester, South Carolina. Vendors were present to display their products and services related to education. Volunteers were on hand to help out with the event, activities were available for the children who attended, along with many prize giveaways throughout the event.
