Tabor drug store help schools

Dameron's Drug Store has been a fissure in Tabor City for years.
Dameron's Drug Store has been a fixture in Tabor City for years.

Helping the community has been a staple part of Dameron Drug ever since they opened their doors in 1946. H.G. “Doc” Dameron moved to Tabor in 1946. He then purchased the Prince Drug Store from Oliver Prince and changed the name to Dameron Drug Store. It is the oldest pharmacy in Tabor City and one of the oldest stores in town. 

 Dameron Drug Store recently donated items to the Tabor City schools, which included notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, glue, staplers and highlighters.

 “The children of today are the future of tomorrow,” said Pam Norris, pharmacy technician at Dameron Drug Store. “We at Dameron Drug Store want to do whatever we can to help these children succeed.”

 Dameron Drug Store has had a hand in donating to Tabor City schools for several years. During the pandemic, the business donated items such as rubbing alcohol, disinfectant, and hand sanitizer, along with other essential needs. 

 For information on how you can donate school supplies or other needs, contact your local school.
