Steele County Social Services and Finley Motors Team Up

School Supply Drive at Finley Motors

School is right around the corner and Finley Motors is helping students get ready to have a successful school year.  Finley Motors is putting on a school supply drive for area students. Finley Motors teamed up with Steele County Social Services to help children have the supplies they need for the start of the school year. 

Children who need help with school supplies have a bus tag which states what supplies they need to start off the school year.  Come and pick a tag and make a child’s first day of school memorable.   Once filled, the tags and supplies can be brought to Finley Motors.  Social Services will distribute the supplies to the children.  Additional general school supplies are also needed.  Please drop off your school supplies by August 12th for distribution.
