The United Way of Aroostook has partnered with Aroostook County Action Program for several years to furnish school supplies for children. This year, the team will also partner with the Local Walmarts in Presque Isle and Houlton to ensure area children have the tools and school supplies needed to start the year off right. Collection boxes will be set up at both Walmarts and the United Way office to collect new school supplies including crayons, pencils, notebooks, glue sticks, backpacks, socks, sneakers, and the like beginning JULY 6th, 2019. Our Partners at Townsquare Media will have “Live on Location” Radio dates July 18 (Houlton Walmart) and 19 (Presque Isle Walmart). Additional partners include Adopt-A-Block Aroostook, North Country Auto, and Verizon Wireless.
