United Way will provide FREE backpacks and school supplies for students entering K-6th grades in the counties listed below.
The only requirements to receive a backpack and supplies are:
- the child must be entering kindergarten through sixth grade
- the child must be present at the event
There are no other restrictions. Your child can participate regardless of where he or she lives, which school he or she attends, or your family’s income.
If you miss your county’s resource fair, please feel free to attend one of the other events!
All giveaways are held on a first-come, first-served basis. Backpacks and supplies will be given away until they run out or the event ends, whichever comes first.
