Salisbury branch of State Employees Credit Union sponsoring art supply drive
The State Employees’ Credit Union in Salisbury is sponsoring an Art Supply Drive. As members of the credit union saw budget cuts in the school system, they realized that art classes might not have the supplies they need to operate for the next school year.
The Salisbury branch of SECU will start collecting supplies Monday, July 20, until the start of school in August. They will be delivered to the Rowan- Salisbury School system for distribution. This is not a statewide drive, it is just at the Salisbury branch, located at 1030 Mooresville Hwy.
