Y-12 recently collected thousands of individual items for Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties’ annual school supply drive as part of the United Way Days of Caring drive. The total includes more than 230 boxes of crayons and markers, 320 notebooks, 300 glue sticks, and 220 packs of pens and pencils. Employees also donated more than $2,500.
After being counted and sorted on-site, the supplies were delivered to ADFAC, where they were made available to qualifying area students. The program has served more than 20,000 disadvantaged students since it began in 1989, including more than 1,900 K–12 students this year alone.
