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”.
