16th Annual School Supply Drive kicks off today-donation and volunteer info!

The 16th Annual United Way of Cass-Clay School Supply Drive will begin accepting donations of new backpacks and school supplies on July 14, 2014! Last year, we equipped 4,744 students with supplies. While we know that not all families who received backpacks access the Free & Reduced Lunch program, 83% of those who did receive backpacks last year self-reported being enrolled.

Donations of new backpacks and school supplies can be dropped off between Monday, July 14 and Friday, August 1. Drop off locations will be announced in June 2014.
