FARGO—Jamie Zastoupil and her daycare Wiggles and Giggles raised $4,450 for the United Way School Supply Drive on Thursday, July 12.

She and the children sold lemonade and baked goods to buy school supplies for underprivileged children in Cass and Clay counties.

The goal was to match last year's earnings of $5,000. They didn't reach that point, but Zastoupil still described it as "a great day!"

Last year, 5,800 Clay and Cass County students were equipped with backpack and school supplies according to Kristina Hein, United Way marketing and brand management director.

The public can donate money and school supplies until July 27.

All supplies will be distributed to families in need on Aug. 4-7 at the Fargodome.
