Families who may not be able to afford new school supplies will now have the opportunity to get the supplies they need. United Way Cass-Clay kicked off its 13th annual school supply drive. They will be collecting new backpacks, pens, pencils, and notepads at 15 locations. Last year’s drive allowed 4,600 students to go back to school with new supplies.

Sherri Thomsen – United Way Cass-Clay President: “It's a big deal and we want to be able to give that joy to other children even if they are not doing the shopping themselves to so go out buy those supplies and then bring them to a drop off center.”

Donations will be accepted through August 12. Find drop off locations at wday.com.
