ABOUT

Does your child need school supplies?

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 in partnership with G.U.E.S.T extended this event to Gloucester. With the amazing support of our community, we were 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 2019-2020 school year!

 

In preparation for the upcoming school year Connected Communities and Boundless Love Ministries are joining with local organizations and businesses to collect needed supplies to be distributed to local school age students that stem from kindergarten through 12th grade.

HOW IT WILL WORK

Donations will be collected until August 23. There will be various drop-off locations for school supplies throughout Gloucester - a complete list can be viewed below.


 

The event will take place on August 24 from 10a-2p at the field in front of the 

Moose Lodge at Hwy 17 and Moose Drive. 

Families and students will check-in where they will receive a backpack and their school supply list. They will then proceed to their appropriate school tents to collect supplies.

One backpack per child. Items will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

No registration required.
