During our annual State Fair School Supply Drive, we gather school supplies to be distributed to students who are served by our statewide Communities In Schools affiliate network. These supplies will be given to students at the beginning of the school year and throughout the year as needed. Many of the students we serve do not have the funds to purchase all new supplies, and we provide them backpacks along with all of the essential supplies to get them through the year.

This September, we will be collecting school supplies at the State Fair gates, and then meeting at Peninsula Trucklines Warehouse in Auburn to sort, count, and group all of these donations.
