During the month of January, City of Dayton employees held a fundraising campaign to sponsor the purchase of school supply kits for the schools. Each kit contains approximately 30 essential, age-appropriate school supply items that could last a student an entire school year. The campaign was incredibly successful; employees raised enough funds to sponsor over 800 kits. The two schools chosen to receive the kits are Wogaman Middle School and Horace Mann Montessori Elementary School.
