2017 Back to School Program

St. Vincent de Paul and The Salvation Army are starting to plan our 17th annual Back to School Program for the 2017 school year. We are gladly working together to make sure the children have the essential supplies they need to start their school year.

With your support, last year we were able to give out over 300 backpacks with limited supplies to start out a child’s first day of school. The average cost for a child starting a new school year plus basic supplies ranges anywhere from $50.00, $100.00 or more depending on the grade. This is tough especially if there is more than one child in the family starting their school year. We are very fortunate to be able to help these children and we could not do this without your help!

We greatly appreciate all the funding and donations we receive from our community for our programs. We would not be able to help these children without your support!
