Back to School Programs
The Back to School Program provides backpacks and supplies for 4K through high school students and supplies for college students. Registration begins in June. Case Managers will email with instructions about how to register to receive backpacks and supplies. If you need supplies during the school year, please contact your child’s school social worker.
Thanksgiving Baskets provide a variety of food for your holiday meal. We offer the opportunity for you to choose what you would like in your basket. We offer a range of cultural and dietary options to meet your needs. Information about how to register will be emailed to you in October.
Winter Wishes is a holiday gift card program. Each registered member of your household receives a gift card for a store or business that you suggest. People from our community purchase the gift cards which you then pick up at our offices. Case Managers will email with instructions for how to register for this program.
