year, hundreds of children in Bay County go back to school without new
school clothes, and many wear flip flops well into the winter months
because their families cannot afford to purchase shoes and clothing for
back to school. In addition, many children arrive to school without the proper materials such as a backpack and supplies.
The United Way of Bay County Back to School Clothing Program and The Do-All, Inc. Backpack Program have collaborated in effort to minimize forms, transportation, and pick-up for the families. Bay County residents can now apply for and pick up both backpacks and clothes at the same location.
thanks to the our major donors, including: The Wirt-Lee Foundation, Globe Fire Sprinkler Systems, and Bay Area Community Foundation. United Way also thanks all other
individuals, businesses, and organizations for all of their generous
donations that made 2015 a record year for distribution, with over 1,200 children. Volunteering is
about giving, contributing, and helping other individuals and the
community at large. We would also like to thank all of the volunteers
who shopped, organized, distributed clothes, and worked many hours to
make this program a success.
Thank you Bay County!
