Needy Bay County Students Get Clothes, School Supplies For Coming Year

Bay County United Way is supervising a two day distribution of items youngsters will need to start a new school year.  Agency spokesperson Tara Wieland says they'll be serving those who applied prior to a July 15th deadline.

Recipients will get all brand new clothes in their sizes plus tennis shoes.  They'll also get a backpack with all the necessary school supplies. Just over 1,000 children are being helped this year compared to about 900 last year.  Area foundations, businesses and individuals supported the program.
