Free Back-to-School Fair Prepares Families for New School Year

The Next Back-to-School Fair will be held in August 21, 2014

The annual Back-to-School Fair sponsored by the Sussex County Family Success Center at Project Self-Sufficiency offers parents the opportunity to network with local agencies and to learn about services available to themselves and to their children.

The Fair is open to active Project Self-Sufficiency participants who are currently striving towards economic self-sufficiency and family stability, and who are in on-going contact with their Case Manager.

Active agency participants who attend the information sessions at the Back-to-School Fair, and who take advantage of the networking opportunities provided there, are eligible to receive free haircuts and school supplies for their children.

Project Self-Sufficiency relies on local businesses and individuals for the donation of new school supplies, such as:
  • crayons
  • glue sticks
  • loose leaf paper
  • erasers
  • scissors
  • pens
  • pencils
  • spiral notebooks
  • backpacks

Local social service agencies, health organizations and safety personnel are on hand to offer tips for a healthy and safe school year, including representatives from, but not limited to:
