|United Way and CAP Team Up for School Readinesss
May 30, 2012, Dayton, Ohio - United
Way of the Greater Dayton Area, Greene County Branch and Community
Action Partnership of the Greater Dayton Area, Greene County Branch
(CAP) are joining forces once more to host their annual School Supply
and Clothing Giveaway.
Now in its 6th year, the one-day
event aims to equip as many children as possible with the tools and
resources they will need to succeed during the 2012-2013 school
year. More than 400 local children benefitted from the program
last year by receiving basic necessities such as backpacks, notebooks
and art supplies as well as new or gently used clothing. The event covers all children in Greene County
districts, so both agencies are hoping that additional donors will step
forward to help them serve as many children as possible.
giveaway will be held on Friday, August 10th from 9am to 3pm in the
Media Room at the Job and Family Services Center (541 Ledbetter Road,
Xenia, OH 45385). Representatives from local health and
human service agencies will be in attendance to provide information and
guidance to families who may require additional forms of assistance.
and individuals who wish to collect donations for the program should
