Free Backpacks and School Supplies for a Great Start
Back-to-school can be a very expensive time for families. To help, Flat River Outreach Ministries (FROM) provides free backpacks and school supplies to families with school-aged children living in the Lowell Area School District who are facing a financial hardship and are in need of backpacks and school supplies.
Ready, Set, Fill Those Backpacks!
Families register ahead of time (registration information below) so on the distribution day, they have a variety of backpacks to choose from along with school supplies (specific to their school and grade). Kids get to pick out their backpack from a variety of color and character options (that range by age and size) that will have them starting school in style. They come in with a smile, and they leave with new backpacks and school supplies!
Backpack registrations will be open until August 2, 2019. Distribution days are Aug 10 from 9:00 am-2:00 pm and Aug 13 from 1:00 pm- 6:00 pm.
Thank you the Amway One by One foundation, donors from the Lowell community, and the many volunteers who invest their time and efforts to make this program possible.
