As children and adults throughout Maine enjoy a well deserved summer vacation, the United Way of York County and several community partners are thinking ahead to make sure that children enter the new school year ready to learn, equipped with the tools they need to succeed, by joining a statewide effort to provide donated items such as backpacks, calculators, pens, pencils, rulers and composition notebooks to children unable to afford them.

"One of our primary goals at United Way is to create and support efforts that help children and youth meet academic milestones and graduate on time," says Kathryn Davis, President and CEO of United Way of York County. "We are excited to join forces with other nonprofits and the ‘Tools for School’ campaign to help get these children off on the right foot in September."
