Back to School Program

Back to School Program

The Back to School Program ensures that children from low-income families in our area receive the tools they need to succeed in school. This includes backpacks stuffed with grade level supplies for children in Pre-K through high school and supplies for college students.  The program reaches nearly 1,000 students in total each year through the generosity of the community.

During the summer, MOM collects new school supplies and new back packs for this program. Cash donations are also accepted and used to purchase items needed for the program.  

Donations of new and gently used athletic apparel and equipment are also accepted to help student athletes achieve success with extra-curricular activities. Many talented student athletes are not able to participate in their sport of choice due to lack of affordability.

The Back to School Program is one of many ways that MOM is working to keep families in stable housing, supplying them with the assistance needed to free up financial resources to pay rent. The program also provides relief to families worried about the extra expense, and joy to children as they prepare for a great year ahead.

Purchased supplies should be delivered to the MOM office by Wednesday, August 15.
