How it works: Children (K-8) on the Free Lunch program in the NAFCS School System receive new backpacks and basic school supplies in the Fall as they return to school.  Here is a list of what is needed to meet the needs. (Supply Lists)

This collaboration is a southern Indiana community-wide effort to meet the needs of elementary and middle school students who need your help to start school with their necessary school supplies.
