Shop and save time while donating to CISD campuses thanks to the Southlake Women's Club.

The first day of school is August 25 and the Southlake Women’s Club is there to help parents and students get ready for the big day.  For fifteen years and counting the charitable group’s annual School Supply Sale has been servicing local parents and teachers by providing pre-packaged, CISD-approved school supplies. Over the years the event has raised over $300,000, which gets distributed directly to CISD campuses to provide additional educational materials.

Jennifer Barry, this year’s Southlake Women’s Club School Supply Chair says, “It's our way of giving back to the community.  It is a wonderful event that brings SWC, CISD and our parents and families together and all the proceeds go back to the participating schools.  It's a win-win for everyone involved.”

The Southlake Women’s Club, (2011 Southlake Style Community Impact Award Winners) want shoppers to know that all sales are tax-free during the one day live event sale to be held Saturday, August 9, at Carroll High School from 7:00am – 4:00pm.

As the parent of 8-year old triplets herself, Barry knows how stressful back to school shopping can be. She’s happy to be part of the school supply sale and says, “Our one-stop shopping offers parents the convenience of getting their child's supplies quickly and without the hassle of dealing with the back-to-school mayhem.  The SWC school supply sale makes the experience easy and fun for the whole family.”

This year’s participating schools include; Carroll Elementary, Johnson Elementary, Old Union Elementary, Walnut Grove Elementary, Durham Intermediate, Eubanks Intermediate, Carroll Middle School and Dawson Middle School.
