United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk’s First- Stuff the Bus Drive
Help Local Kids Succeed in School
We are hosting our first “Stuff the Bus” school supply drive, to collect new school materials for low-income students in our community. The drive will run from August 18 to September 1, 2018. Look for our donation bins in our partner stores: Superstore (Simcoe), Zehrs (Caledonia) and Giant Tiger (Hagersville and Dunnville). Community members are encouraged to donate new school supplies from a provided “wish list”.
New school supplies can boost a child’s self-esteem, providing the ability to start school more compelled to learn, says Brittany Burley, Executive Director of United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk. Our goal is that every child in Haldimand and Norfolk, regardless of family income, has all the supplies they need to succeed.
The Board of Directors of the United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Executive Director, Brittany Burley.
