Earlier this week, East Coast Wings + Grill helped students prepare for the upcoming school year by providing backpacks and school supplies for students at South Fork Elementary.

On Monday, Aug. 28, the first day of school, Maria Capparelli, East Coast Wings Corp. director of marketing, delivered a box load of backpacks filled with school supplies, and a $1,000 check for materials to Elizabeth Douthit, a second-grade teacher at the school.

According to Capparelli, South Fork was one of five schools in the country to receive the generous donation from East Coast Wings. Additionally, through Aug. 20, East Coast Wings + Grill hosted a school supply drive. Community members were encouraged to bring in school supplies such as backpacks, rulers, notepads, pens, and binders to donate when dining at a location.

In a press release sent to The Chronicle last week, the owner of the East Coast Wings + Grill on Country Club Road, Steve Kantos, said he was excited about the opportunity to help local students reach their full potential.

“We created the classroom sponsorship to be implemented at five communities across the nation to help aid the financial burden on teachers and families that often comes with acquiring school supplies,” said Kantos. ““This is just one small way of giving back to communities and showing our appreciation for teachers – we want to ensure our local schools and students have the resources they need to succeed.”
