Associated Charities of Lenawee County is preparing for its annual “Back to School” program to provide clothing, shoes, backpacks and school supplies to Lenawee children. The 2018 distribution will run August 21-23, 2018.

We are accepting donations of backpacks, school supplies, new socks and new underwear to help us with this program. Monetary donations are also accepted. School clothing will be available at no cost to Lenawee County families with children enrolled in kindergarten through high school and that are registered at Associated Charities.

Families must be pre-registered at the Charities before Aug. 3. Documentation of income eligibility, proof of residency and birth certificates for all children are required.

Children are not prohibited from accompanying their parents; however, shopping will be less congested if children are not present. No strollers will be allowed.

The clothing supply is restocked each shift so that everyone has an equal opportunity to obtain suitable clothing.

For more information call Associated Charities at 265-7255.

The 2018 Back to School Program is sponsored by Kappa Kappa Epsilon, Adrian Kiwanis Club, Lenawee Youth Council, AM Rotary Club, local churches and donations from the community.
