The United Way of Cass Clay will be distributing backpacks and school supplies for students in grades K-12 on Thursday, August 13, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the Veterans Memorial Arena, as part of the 11th annual United Way School Supply Drive. Last year, the drive distributed a total of 3,700 backpacks to children and families throughout Cass and Clay county communities. The United Way expects to meet the needs of over 4,000 children and families during this year's drive.
