Project Self-Sufficiency welcomes the donation of new, unused school supplies for distribution to the low-income families we serve, including:

  • glue sticks

  • loose leaf paper

  • erasers

  • scissor

  • pens

  • pencils

  • spiral notebooks

  • backpacks


The annual Back-to-School Fair allows participants and their families to access information about community resources, including household safety, first aid, relationships with schools, effective homework strategies, and more.

School supplies are distributed at the Back-to-School Fair, and used at the Little Sprouts Early Learning Center and at children's programs throughout the year.

School supplies are gratefully received in July and August, Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m., and Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monetary donations to purchase back packs and school supplies are also welcome.
