Want to lend a hand? Consider donating NEW school supplies!
When you’re struggling to feed your family or afford a roof over their heads, school supplies don’t always make the list. That’s why the Orland Township Food Pantry is asking the community to come together and ‘Pack-A-Backpack’!
Items like backpacks, art supplies, and writing tools are essential to prepare children mentally, emotionally, and physically for school. New backpacks and new supplies give children a sense of security and excitement as they begin the school year. With this assistance, parents can focus on rent and groceries instead of facing the stress of school-related expenses
View the list of suggested supplies here.
The Orland Township Food Pantry will be distributing the school supplies to qualifying low-income families residing in Orland Township. View more information below.
