Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Summer is in full bloom but United Way of Cass Clay is thinking school days.

The 15th Annual United Way School Supply Drive is underway. In the last five years, 20-thousand backpacks have been distributed to needy students in Cass and Clay counties.

The backpacks are filled with pencils, notebooks, binders, erasers, glue and more. The program helped more than 4-thousand children prepare for school last year.

Thomas Hill- United Way of Cass Clay: "Every one of the 4,599 students equipped went to school prepared ready to succeed confident and on track for the school year."

Cash donations are also needed.
