Baldwin EMC Hosts Fifth Annual Supplies for Success Drive

Baldwin EMC is calling on members of the community to help give kids a bright future. The cooperative will be collecting new, unused school supplies throughout the month of July. All donations will be distributed to local children through the Palm Project.

The Palm Project was started by the Baldwin County Education Coalition to give school counselors, social workers and teachers access to supplies for local students who may not be able to provide their own. The Palm Project serves all public schools in Baldwin County, including Gulf Shores and Orange Beach city schools.

“It’s an unfortunate reality, but every year, many local children go to school without the basic supplies they need to be successful,” said Mark Ingram, Baldwin EMC vice president of corporate services and public relations. “But you can help change that, because every donation goes directly into the hands of students in our community,”

“The counseling program at Foley Middle School is extremely thankful for the support of the Palm Project because it has allowed our students to have all the supplies they need for school,” said Jennifer Kukes, M.S., 7th grade Foley Middle School counselor. “So instead of them not showing up because they don’t have something, they know they can come to us, and we can get them what they need.”

Donations can be dropped off at any Baldwin EMC office or at the Wharf Store located at 2851 Wharf Pkwy., Suite D118. For more information on Supplies for Success along with a list of requested supplies, visit
