United Way of Cass-Clay school supply drive needs backpacks

FARGO, ND — The United Way of Cass-Clay is giving it one last effort to meet their goal of 6,000 backpacks for students returning back to school.

The goal is to help  students get the school supplies and backpacks they need to really feel confident going into the school year.

The United Way has heard from administrators and parents that younger students doing at home learning will need even more school supplies than in previous years.

“This  year, we’ll have a far greater need then prior years. We know that the community is in need and that resources are being requested, and so we believe that our need will be even greater,” United Way of Cass-Clay Community Engagement Director Tiffany McShane said.

They have collected just over 5,100 backpacks and are in need of more supplies and money to reach their goal.

You can drop off donations at the Fargodome by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug 3.
