No child should go to school without the supplies they need, like a backpack, notebooks, crayons, and pencils. Parents spent an average of $270 on back-to-school items per student in 2021. Thanks to the generosity of the community, this program collects donations of school supplies for Boycevillle, Colfax, Glenwood City, Elk Mound, and Menomonie school districts each fall. 

We accept donations of new school supplies during the months of July and August each year.
