School supply program changes locations

NORMAN — There’s a new location for United Way of Norman’s annual ABC School Supply Program. This year’s intake process will be at the Bethel Baptist Multipurpose Building, 1132 McGee Drive.

Sign up starts July 14 and will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day until July 18 or until funds are depleted. The ABC School Supply program operates on a first come, first served basis. Families are encouraged to show up early in the week.

The ABC School Supply program serves students in Norman and some surrounding communities. Each year, around 1,000 students receive free school supplies.

“School readiness is a major goal of United Way of Norman,” said Diane Murphree, director of the ABC School Supply program. “We know that kids who show up to school with the supplies they need will be more ready to learn and have a better chance to succeed.”

Pre-K through 12th-grade students in Norman, Noble, Little Axe, Lexington and Robin Hill are eligible to apply. However, families must meet income guidelines to qualify.

Families must bring all of the following information to the intake process for their application to be processed:

· Current proof of income, including documentation of all TANF, DHS and SSI funding, payroll, child support and/or any other sources of income

· Current proof of residence

· Social Security cards for all family members

· Current driver’s license or photo ID card
