NORTH BALTIMORE - The school district is the beneficiary of more than $10,000 in donations, including an anonymous $8,000 donation for school supplies.
The donations were accepted at Tuesday's Board of Education meeting.
The $8,000 donation is earmarked to provide school supplies for Pre-K through 6th grade students in the district for the 2013-2014 school year.
"It covers everything that's consumable," said Superintendent Marlene North. "It doesn't cover backpacks or it doesn't cover tennis shoes," but familiar items like pens, markers, glue sticks, and erasers, to name a few.
"Otherwise (these items) would go on a supply list" for parents to buy, she said.
North noted this is the fifth year in a row such a donation has been given to the schools.
She confirmed these donations have been given by the same individual every year, but would not comment on whether or not they were a community member or a previous North Baltimore student.
"It's someone who cares about our community," she said.
Also accepted was a $2,500 donation from the estate of Harold "Ed" Richmond to be deposited in the Greg Conine Award Fund. The yearly award is presented to a freshman athlete.
The board additionally accepted a $250 gift card from Lowes to help with the repair of the concession stand roof at the football field.
