Give and Take
The Wilmington School Business Partnership is a collaborative effort by local business, community agencies, and the school system to establish a cooperative, mutually beneficial, long-term relationship.
In an effort to enable the community and businesses within the Wilmington community to assist the schools, this exchange was developed with the intent of providing a forum where goods and services can be requested or offered. Listed below are items specifically requested by teachers and staff at our schools.
If you want to offer a tax-deductible good or service or if you are part of the Wilmington School District and want to request a good or service, email Chris Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org. We thank you for your participation and your efforts to continually improve our schools.
