Billings, Montana – On Thursday, Sept. 16, the United Way of Yellowstone County will hold its annual Operation Supply drive at 2173 Overland Ave.
In order to tackle the obstacles that can prevent a child from learning, the group is requesting businesses and individuals to collect and donate school supplies and hygiene products. The products are utilized to supply local school pantries, which are used to assist students in need throughout the year.
During regular business hours, the UWYC garage doors will be open for donations to drive in and drop off with limited contact. Donors are encouraged to pre-sort and count their items prior to drop off.
Those who are unable to attend the event are encouraged to consider making a one-time cash donation, which will be utilized to purchase any items that are lacking.
Donations can be made safely and securely through their website bit.ly/donate_supplies.
People interested to participate in Operation Supply can visit www.unitedwayyellowstone.org/operationsupply for more information and for a list of needed supplies.
