How it works:

Children (K-8) on the Free Lunch program in the NAFCS School System can receive new backpacks and/or basic school supplies in late summer as they return to school. Here is a list of what is needed to meet the needs. (Download Supply Lists 2015) This collaboration is a southern Indiana community-wide effort that works with all area churches, businesses, entities and individuals to meet the needs of elementary and middle school students who need your help to start school with their necessary school supplies. Please contact Linda Reynolds at (812) 948-9248, ext. 1004 or to make your pledge.

Backpacks and supplies are due to Hope Southern Indiana by July 6, 2015.
