The United Way of Cass-Clay still needs your help for its annual school supply drive. Although many backpacks have been filled, donations are still needed. Character backpacks for younger kids are one of the most needed items. Last year more than 4,000 backpacks were filled. More than 2,500 backpacks have been filled so far. United Way officials say they hope to beat last years record.

Courtney Jones – United Way Community Impact Associate: “We also have a huge need for things like backpacks and one inch binders and blue and black pens the list goes on, but it's been a really great experience to just work with this many people and see how the community gets behind United Way of Cass-Clay on this event.”

The United Way is accepting donations throughout the week at all of their drop off sites. For the full list of locations go to our website wday.com. The first distribution of supplies is set for August 13th at the Fargodome.
