For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD—Marshfield Area United Way’s annual “Supplies 4 Success” Backpack and School Supply Drive will be collecting school supplies for area children until Aug. 8.

You can help children in our area begin the next school year ready to learn by donating backpacks and/or school supplies and dropping them off at any of the following locations: Absolute Health Chiropractic, Associated Bank & Associated Bank at Festival Foods, BMO Harris Bank, Century 21 Realty, Citizens State Bank of Loyal (Marshfield, Spencer & Loyal), Christ Lutheran Church, Corner Stone Community Church, First Choice Credit Union, Forward Bank (Marshfield & Greenwood), Good Shepherd Church, Hawkins Ash CPAs, I-State Trucking, MACCI, NextHome Hub City, Partners Bank (Marshfield, Spencer & Stratford), Prevail Bank, and Simplicity Credit Union.
Donations can also be dropped off at the United Way office, 612 W Blodgett St., Marshfield, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
