Publix recently held their Tools for Back to School program benefiting Craven County Schools through Partners In Education. Over $7,000 was collected from generous Publix shoppers to purchase school supplies. A presentation was made to Ashley Faulkenberry, principal at Trent Park Elementary as a representation of the school supplies that were collected and disbursed to all Craven County Schools through PIE’s Stuff the Bus. Ms. Faulkenberry’s students presented the management of Publix with thank you cards.
