United Way - Fill the Bus!

On August 13th between 10:00am and 2:00pm we will be collecting school supplies for anyone who would like to donate. There will be a school bus setup outside the United Way office for individuals to fill the bus with donated supplies. We will serve hot dogs and drinks, as well as the first 100 individuals to donate will receive a Fill the Bus t-shirt. Please see the attached flyer for the full details and a list of needed supplies.

We have also created a fundraising opportunity if you would like to donate monetarily this year. Our goal is to raise at least $29,000 in order to provide each of the 29 school districts within our six-county footprint a check for $1,000. I have listed the details below for donating. When sharing the information, please let your community know they can designate directly to your school district!
