Make A Difference And Be "United for School Success"



United for School Success is a project that aims to help ensure local youth are ready for school and continued success this fall. 

The goal is two-prong.  One, to collect school supplies like pencils, pocket folders, binders, etc.
The second is to provide the items kids need to have on the first day to be a typical peer --- sneakers, socks and underwear.   

Items will be distributed through our five United Way Family and Neighborhood Resource Centers:  
Trinity Alliance, Unity House, Mechanicville Area Community Service Center, Schenectady Community Action Program and Schoharie County Community Action Program.  

School supplies for children grades K to 8 can average $105-$150 per child.  School supplies for older students are much higher due to bigger needs --- more durable backpacks, graphing calculators for math, not even inclusive of the needs to do research/assignments via computer.

Through donations from local businesses and community-minded individuals UNITED, we can make a difference.

School Supplies Needed Include:

  • Notebooks
  • Pens/Pencils
  • Two Pocket Plastic Folders
  • Binders  
  • New Backbacks
  • Socks
  • Children Sneakers (all sizes)
  • Children Underwear (Girls Size 4-6, 8-10; Boys Size 6-8, 10-12)

Thank you for your support! 

Children having their needs met at the start of the school year can go a long way towards not only their educational development but can also build their self-confidence and sense of “fitting in”.
