FLORENCE, S.C. -- Ruiz Foods Friday afternoon donated four tubs of school supplies to the students and teachers of Savannah Grove Elementary School.

“Our school supply drive is a way to help take the pressure off teachers and students from worrying about having to purchase supplies,” Pete Mayadag, Florence plant manager, said of the donation through a release on the event.

Each year the Florence County factory works with a different school for which its employees donate supplies.

“Our team members really came together to ensure this was a successful drive,” Mayadag said.
