Back to School Program
Neighborhood Services collects school supplies each year and distributes them to children in kindergarten through grade 12. Many families do not have the funds to provide their children with the supplies they need to have a successful school year.
In 2016 we helped 482 students begin the year on a positive note by giving them the right supplies to succeed, and in 2017 we expect to top 500 backpacks. With the help of generous supporters like you, NSI will distribute school supplies to families in need from August 7-10, 2017.
How Can You Help?
- Donate new backpacks or school supplies.
- Provide a cash or check donation to be used for school supplies.
- Assist us in sorting supplies, filling and organizing backpacks for pick-up, and distributing them to families.
