FOCUS on School Supplies

Home/FOCUS on School Supplies

The date for distribution of the the school supplies is generally mid-August each year. That makes it possible for parents and children to plan and get excited about the start of school after Labor Day.

Children in families who come to the FOCUS Interfaith Food Pantry are eligible to receive a backpack and supplies from a list appropriate to their grade in school. Families need to sign up at the pantry prior to the distribution date.

Yes! You may sign up to volunteer- either for setting up the school supplies, distributing the supplies with the families, organizing the supplies to go to the schools or by donating school supplies.
The extra school supplies are organized and given to the school district for the student use throughout the school year.
