Back To School

The Back To School Program has provided needy students, kindergarten through 12th grade, with basic school supplies and a backpack for that very important first day of school since 1990. It is a volunteer driven program with donations coming from all areas of our communities; individuals, businesses, service organizations and churches. Families are referred for the Back To School Program by Health & Human Services staff that have identified children who could benefit from the Back To School Program.

Being a part of this very worthwhile project is easy! If you would like to collect or donate new school supplies or backpacks just let us know! If you would like to make a monetary donation, a check can be made out to:

Appleton, WI 54911

Backpacks are distributed in time for the new school year. Donations of supplies/backpacks or monetary are greatly appreciated by early August, but are gladly taken throughout the year. If you need assistance in getting the supplies to Volunteer Services please call 832-5515.

The Back To School Program is a fun and easy way to help out kids in our communities. A new backpack can put the biggest smile on a child’s face! Be a part of the fun – participate this year in the Back To School Program.
