Basket Artwork copyLocal Kroger stores, Youth United Way, and United Way of the Mid-South are helping provide Mid-South students with the supplies they need to succeed in school on July 16 and 17 with “Fill The Basket” collections at local Kroger stores. Many families struggle to secure the supplies students need in time for the school year. This can lead to distractions in the classroom and problems completing assignments. With your help, more students will have the materials they need at the start of the next school year. Students in the Youth United Way leadership program are helping lead this effort, partnering with local Kroger locations. Please make a difference in Mid-South education by visiting one of the Kroger locations below on Saturday, July 16th and/or Sunday, July 17th from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and drop off donations of school supplies (see a list of supplies).
