Today is the day! Our annual School Supply Drive sponsored by @bankofamerica is here! We've made it easier than ever for our community to rally around our students virtually this year, ensuring they have the tools they need to return to their ever-changing classrooms. (Link in our profile). Since 2007, your support has helped over 14,800 students walk into the classroom fully prepared and we're ready to continue to show that care for our families this year. Follow the link in our profile to purchase one fully stocked backpack for just $25 OR choose to host your own virtual drive and rally your coworkers, friends, or book club members together this summer to ensure our students have what they need to succeed. 🙏 #liveunited #liveunitedabc #schoolsupplydrive #unitedway #schoolsupplydrive #asheville #828isgreat #avltoday #ashevillestrong #UnitedWayAVLSchoolSupplyDrive #ashevillelocal
