School supply drive underway for Bartholomew County students

Summer break for area students has just got underway. However, the Bartholomew County United Way is looking ahead to make sure students have what they need when they return to class in August. Alicia Monroe talks about the school supply drive for all county school-aged children.

Monroe explains that the United Way is accepting donations to help the cause.

To receive free supplies, a student’s parent or guardian must register for the supply drive by calling (812) 375-2216. That number is answered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. officials the registration deadline to get guaranteed supplies is July 18th.
