More than 100 students in need will receive supplies to start the school year.

The Don’t Miss the Bus school supply drive ended Friday, and more than 125 students are expected to receive items donated by the community. Supplies will be divided among local school districts.

The drive was organized by Bluegrass Cellular. Bins were located throughout the county at churches, businesses and government buildings.

There were more bin locations this year, said Michelle Tonietti-Goodman, group manager of marketing for Bluegrass Cellular, which saw significant employee participation.

Tonietti-Goodman said Bluegrass Cellular employees stay active in the community, and this was a way to assist the academic needs of the area’s youth.

“I think it went absolutely amazing,” she said.
