United Way Build a BackPack 2018 School Supplies Collections




Backpack and School Supplies Donations Bring in Successful New School Years!


The 2018 "Build a Backpack" Program Giving Back to the Children of the Community.


With great genorosity from Walmart and the Sheriff's office, as well as many others, we were able to collect 800 backpacks and many other school supplies. We can also give thanks to Hillridge Farms, Farm Bureau, State Employee's Credit Union, Novozymes North America Inc., Legal Aid, and Southwire, as well as any others who volunteered or contributed. Thank you for your commitment. The program was a huge success, and many students will be starting off the school year happy and prepared.
