Students need supplies whether they start school virtually or in the classroom.
Due to social distancing restrictions, we are unable to hold our annual Fill-The-Bus events with Wal-Mart this summer. At these events, United Way volunteers encourage shoppers to purchase essential school supplies for local students. We still want to provide students access to the basic tools needed for success while making safety a priority.
Sign up below to give back by hosting a school supply drive for students in Northwest Louisiana.
All school supply drives will end September 30. The last day for a drive to begin collecting supplies is September 21.
