Supplies4Students

…a community working together to support families in Oxford County needing back to school supplies.

Through the collaboration of local organizations & generous donors throughout Oxford County, families with ongoing or sudden financial challenges are able to receive support for back to school supplies.  Choosing and shopping for school supplies encourages families to work within a budget. It provides the opportunity to receive guidance for efficient spending and gives students choice on the supplies needed to help them succeed.  By collecting monetary donations for this program, we have greater opportunity to provide families with emotional tools like confidence, independence and dignity.

Families living in Oxford County and needing support can register for Supplies4Students by calling 2-1-1 anytime of day.  Once registered, families will receive information about the dates and times they are able to shop locally.  Students in grades JK-Grade 6 will receive a $35 voucher and students in grades 7-12 will receive a $50 shopping voucher.  Shopping will take place at Staples Woodstock, or Staples Tillsonburg and at a designated time before the first day of school.

Incredible things happen when we bring people and organizations together!  Our efforts can reach even more students needing this support!

To register, call 2-1-1.
