Will County Back to School Fair Seeks Volunteers and Donations!
The Catholic Charities Back to School Fair in Will County will be held Thursday, August 7th from 11:00am to 6:00 pm, at the University of St. Francis at 500 Wilcox Street in Joliet. The Fair provides free essential health and human services to low-income families living in Will County, as well as free school supplies.
We are in need of:
· New plain color backpacks (suitable for K-12th graders and interchangeable for boys or girls)
· Monetary donations to assist us in purchasing specific and identical school supplies to place in backpacks provided at the Fair. No donation is too big or too small.
· New or gently used books appropriate for students in pre-school through 12th grade. Please separate the book donations for:
1. Pre-school – kindergarten
2. 1st – 5th grade
3. 6th grade – 8th grade
4. 9th – 12th grade
· Volunteers (minimum 16 years old) – especially bilingual volunteers
We will collect the above items on Thursday, 7/17/14, from 9am-3pm, at our Catholic Charities Giving Tree donation center located at 3016 S. State Street in Lockport.
