Register of Deeds Donates 800 Book Bags for Homeless Children

Aug 22, 2018

The Cumberland County Register of Deeds office donated 800 book bags to Cumberland County Schools and the Fayetteville Police Department in a dedication ceremony this morning. The book bags were packed as part of the Register of Deeds’ annual school supply drive and will be distributed to homeless school children in the county by Cumberland County Schools and Fayetteville Police.


The Register of Deeds office packed 650 book bags for the schools and 150 bags for the American Red Cross to help with families who have experienced a disaster. The Cumberland County NC Works Center collected supplies and donated 300 of the back packs that were dedicated.


“You can count on the citizens of Cumberland County and the City of Fayetteville any time there is a need,” said Register of Deeds Lee Warren. “It never surprises me that when there is a need, the people of this community we call home step up to the plate and we want to thank the community for their kindness and generosity.”


Warren presented the Register of Deeds “Certificate of Good Deed” to Lila and Lathen Hairr, two children who sold lemonade to raise $350 for the book bag drive. Lila and Lathen are the children of Jason and Hollie Hairr.


Community partners representing businesses and organizations who donated book bags and supplies also attended the dedication ceremony.
