Event Description:
The United Way of Okaloosa & Walton Counties and their Partner Agencies will partner with local Walmart stores and two Publix Supermarkets in an effort to provide needed school supplies to local children for the upcoming school year.

Plan now to shop at Walmart and/or Publix at Sun Plaza and at Brooks Bridge every Saturday in the month of July and August, beginning July 7th, from 10 am to 4 pm to donate school supplies to help us “CRAM THE VAN”. It is easy to help… just purchase the school supplies for your children and/or a little extra for others using the list of items required by schools and drop them in the “CRAM THE VAN”. United Way Partner Agencies will collect and sort the supplies, then distribute the needed school supplies to local children in our community.
