COLUMBUS, Ohio, August 2019 – Back-to-school season is upon us, and UCT has gotten into the spirit by collecting and distributing over 15 bags of supplies including spiral notebooks, pencils, crayons, calculators, glue, and even backpacks for students at Livingston Elementary School in Columbus.
Livingston Elementary School’s nearly 450 students in grades PK-6 includes individuals with developmental handicaps and learning disabilities, children with multiple disabilities, and gifted and talented students. The donated supplies will benefit all students since the school has a community supply system, which means all supplies are shared by everyone. This system helps students learn how to share and cooperate; it cuts down on competitiveness and one-upmanship; and it ensures that all students have what they need to get the most out of their school experience.
UCT has three local councils in Columbus that support a number of worthy causes in the central Ohio area, including the Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s Operation Feed, United Way, Faith Mission, Special Olympics, The ARC and Ronald McDonald House.
