Operation School Supply

United Way believes every child in Yellowstone County deserves the chance to learn and succeed in life.

Operation School Supply helps stock local school pantries with school supplies and hygiene items for teachers, counselors, and administrators to provide to students in need throughout the school year.  Join us in empowering students and teachers! We are collecting school supplies to support under-resourced students.
