Annual Backpack & School Supply Drive
July 6 - August 7, 2020
Backpack Day for Enfield Kids! - August 14, 2020
HELP ENFIELD KIDS START THE SCHOOL YEAR READY TO LEARN!
ERfC's annual ‘Backpack and School Supply Drive’ will be held July 6 through August 7. The drive is a collaborative community effort to make school supplies available to Enfield children in grades K-12 so they are ready to succeed on the first day of school!
New backpacks and supplies will be available for Enfield families who need assistance getting kids ready for school. Backpacks will be distributed on August 14 from 2-4PM at Alcorn School 1010 Enfield Street, Enfield CT).
Last year, because of you, we were able to exceed our goal of collecting and filling over 1,000 backpacks for Enfield kids.
On 'Backpack Day!' 2019' over 600 backpacks were given to Enfield students! The remaining backpacks were distributed to all Enfield Public Schools, ERfC administrative office, ECDC, FRC, Youth Services, Saint Patrick's, Saint Bernard's and Saint Martha's for children whose families were not able to attend on Friday, August 16, 2019.
