#OtherSchoolsMatter Supply Drive


We are excited to put our awareness of #OtherPeopleMatter to work this year and are excited to start with efforts to support a school community impacted by Hurricane Florence.

As you know, Hurricane Florence hit the North Carolina Coast hard. In response to our coastal neighbors in need, Hilburn has adopted Bolivia Elementary. The Bolivia Elementary Bears were hit hard by the hurricane and have a long road to restoring their community. Bolivia, North Carolina is located in Brunswick County, about 15 miles from Wilmington. It is right on the coast. Over the next two weeks, we are organizing and collecting supplies for The Bolivia Elementary Bears.
