MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - With school right around the corner, the community came together to donate school supplies for students in need.

Old National Bank, Greater Mankato Area United Way and some local students collected the donations for delivery from various stops throughout the area.

The “Do Good” double-decker bus from Wealth Centers of America helped transport the donations.

“Partnerships like this are critical to the work that we do in schools and this is one great way that we can work together to meet the needs of our learners and we are super eager, of course, to get everybody back in school,” said Roosevelt Elementary Principal, Ann Haggerty

Since Aug. 16, businesses and community members have donated supplies at eight different sites across town.

“It looks like we have lots and lots of the basic school supplies from glue to scissors, to pencils, to notebooks to folders, things that kids need to be successful, said Haggerty.

All supplies are to be distributed to Mankato Area Public School students.
