United Way Back to School Fair coming

It may sound a little early for the words “Back to School”, but the United Way of Mahaska County is thinking about the new school year.  Their annual back to school fair will be on Wednesday, August 12 at the Lacey Recreation Complex baseball parking lot in Oskaloosa.  United Way community impact coordinator Mycah Hansen tells the No Coast Network the location isn’t the only thing different about this year’s back to school fair.

“It’s going to be a drive through this year.  So parents will be able to just drive through and we’ll have stations on both sides where you can get backpacks, supplies, shoes and lots of flyers from different organizations here in town.”

You will need to sign up by July 31 to receive school supplies.  To do that, go online to UnitedWayMahaska.org or to the United Way of Mahaska County’s Facebook page.  The back to school fair is Wednesday, August 12 from 2:30 to 6:30pm.
