GREENFIELD — It had been a long day at the Stuff the Bus donation drive when a woman approached workers with a sack of school supplies and a story.
Two years ago, her family had benefited from the United Way of Central Indiana’s effort to equip needy children with all the back-to-school essentials. She and her husband had both lost their jobs and were down on their luck, and they had worried about preparing their kids. But United Way, with its annual “Backpack Attack,” was there with everything they needed.
This year, now gainfully employed, the woman wanted to give back to the program that had made such a difference to her family.
