Our friends at Real People Educating Others (RPEO), a non-profit based in Williamsburg, started the 757 Give Back a few years ago that provides children in the Hampton Roads area with school supplies. At the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, Connected Communities extended this event to Gloucester. With the amazing support of our community, in the first year and every year since, we have been able to help over 200 local kids obtain the supplies they needed to return to school!

We are so excited to do this again for the 2020-2021 school year - with a little twist!


To support students and teachers during this unique school year, we will be providing CARE KITS for KIDS and gift cards for teachers.


Monetary donations will be collected and used to purchase a variety of supplies that can be used at home or in the classroom. 

Kits will be assembled and distributed in a safe and comfortable way.


1 kit per child will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

No registration required.
