Lincoln County Schools Press Release
The United Way of Lincoln County is a strong supporter of Lincoln County Schools. Over the years, the United Way has provided grants and resources to schools across the district.
United Way of Lincoln County provides several Community Resource Hubs for the community. These Hubs are managed through various partners in Lincoln County. The resource hubs can be accessed by any school employee, DSS personnel, or United Way agency during operating hours or by scheduling an appointment. Supplies are restocked at the beginning of each school year through United Way’s Stuff the Bus event.
Asbury Resource Center (ARC) is located at Asbury Academy in Lincolnton. The ARC provides clothing, shoes, hygiene items, and other essentials for students in Lincoln County. The ARC is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am - 2:00pm. For more information, contact Leslie Barlow at [email protected] or call Asbury Academy at 704-736-4766.
