United Way of Seneca County Launches “Fill the Bus” Campaign to Provide School Supplies


Help Fill the Bus —Did you know that many area students start the year behind when they don’t come prepared with the school supplies they need?  This year, the United Way of Seneca County is launching a community-wide school supply drive to help area schools equip their elementary students with the basic supplies.  On Wednesday August 17 from 10:00am until 2:00pm, supplies will be collected at  the Seneca Falls Elks Lodge which will then be distributed to the county schools.  You can help by collecting supplies at your workplace and then dropping them off the day of the event.  Collection sites have also been set up throughout the County.


Supplies can be dropped off at the United Way Office prior to the event or arrangements for pickup may be made if needed.  A master list of supplies includes crayons and colored pencils, pencils, erasers, loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks, small metal scissors, markers/highlighters, canvas/plastic supply cases, glue/glue sticks, pocket folders, tissues, wide-rule composition notebooks, and blue or black pens.


Monetary donations will also be accepted with funds going to support this effort.  Checks may be made payable to United Way of Seneca County.  Please note that it is for Fill the Bus 2016.
