Community Connection

United Way of Chester County was proud to help the Coatesville Youth Initiative (CYI) ready our children with back-to-school supplies. In conjunction with STAPLES Connect, the United Way provided hundreds of boxes of school supplies which volunteers assembled and distributed to Coatesville youth.  To learn more about how your business or organization can run a supply drive, contact Doug Kaiser, Director of Resource Development, at 610.429.9400 ext. 4102.
