Back to School Program
The Back to School Program ensures that children 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 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.
Even though the upcoming school year might look a little different than usual, MOM is still here to assist your students with being as prepared as possible! Our 2020 Back to School Program is ramping up and client registration will be available from Wednesday, July 1st through Friday, August 14th. The distribution date for the program this year will be Saturday, August 22nd from 1-7pm. If you’d like to register any students in your household in grades PreK through College for the program this year, please fill out the application form.
A completed application will generate an automatic email response with more information about distribution dates and new processes for the program this year, so please keep this message for your records! Backpacks and limited supplies (supplies only for college students) will only be available for households that are currently certified as MOM clients and submitted a completed application.
For the last 20 years, the community has generously provided supplies and backpacks, all to help ensure that the kids in our community have what they need to start the school year ready for success. This year, while things have to look different to ensure both the safety of our volunteers and clients, we know that more than ever, families need support.
How can you help? We will NOT be accepting physical supplies this year, but do still plan to provide 500 backpacks filled with supplies to area students.
The cost of this program will be approximately $18,000. We are raising the funds needed to make the program possible. Instead of buying extra supplies to donate, please consider supporting the program financially. For credit card donations, please write "back to school" in the notes field.
