2017 United Way School  Supplies Drive--Collection Volunteers

July 22, 23, 29, and 30

Help equip Douglas County students for school by staffing our school supplies drive on July 22, 23, 29, and 30.  All donations will stay in Douglas County and be distributed to clients of local agencies such as ECKAN, Penn House, and the Salvation Army.  All collection supplies will be provided - just bring your smiles and be ready to be amazed by the generosity of Lawrence residents!  Two hour shifts are available at Checkers, Office Depot, both of the area Walmart stores, both of the area HyVee stores, and all four of the area Dillons stores. Shifts run from 10:00-noon, 12:00-2:00, and 2:00-4:00 on July 22 and 29; noon-2:00 and 2:00-4:00, on July 23 and 30. This is a great opportunity for families or groups, as well as for individuals.  Groups may choose  to "adopt" a site for the entire day.  For more information, please contact Shelly Hornbaker at or at 865-5030, ext 301.
