Students in Campbell will get to restock their school supplies this week.
The Mickey Soroka Charitable Foundation purchased $6,500 worth of supplies to pass out to all students in pre-kindergarten through the 12th grade.
The foundation was established after Mickey Soroka, who taught math and multi-media courses at Campbell High School, passed away unexpectedly in 2011.
It originally created a scholarship for seniors attending Youngstown State University, but its goal is to help students throughout the entire district.
“In our district, it’s pretty important. Supplies aren’t as easy for some of our kids to have. They were given supplies here fairly early at the beginning of the year. We realized there’s a time of year right here in the middle of the semester where supplies are needed,” said organizer Eric Gonzalez.
Campbell High School students who made the honor roll the first half of the year also got a jump drive.
The Foundation holds several fundraisers throughout the year, including a pancake breakfast and golf outing, to pay for these projects.
