On August 6, 8, and 9, 2014, school supplies and backpacks will be provided to children in the community and guests of the Topeka Rescue Mission, a charitable organization that provides food, shelter, and clothing to those in need during their Back to School Fair. In addition to backpacks filled with school supplies, children at the Mission will also receive a new outfit and pair of shoes for school. This Back to School Fair provides essential items for children who otherwise may not have what they need to start school this year.
Dates and times for the Back to School Fair are as follows:
Area residents can donate new school supplies and other materials by dropping them off at the Topeka Rescue Mission’s distribution center, located at 401 NW Norris Street, Topeka, Kansas. Items that are needed include:
When families are struggling to feed and provide for their children, school supplies are not their top priority. Many local children in need have never owned notebooks or crayons of their own. And with additional budget cuts, schools are unable to fill this gap and provide supplies for these children.
