United Way News: July 2017

Back-to-School Shopping for Impact!

Do you love back-to-school shopping?

Each year, United Way’s Backpack Coalition distributes over 3,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to students in financial need across Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties. We need your help! Here are some ways to get involved:
  • Bring in a school supply donation to Boston Store at Brookfield Mall and receive an autograph from Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott! Saturday, July 22, 2:00 - 3:30pm. Thanks, Boston Store, for sponsoring this fun event!
  • Can’t make it on July 22? Boston Store and Green Bay Packers Community Partners are collecting school supply donations at all Milwaukee-area Boston Stores July 19 through August 2.
  • Come to Boston Store in Brookfield Mall to help sort supplies and pack backpacks. August 5, 11am-1pm.
  • On Saturday, July 29, visit one of 10 Wal-Mart or Good Harvest locations and purchase school supplies to help us fill the yellow school bus that will be parked out front! Click here to view retail locations.
