Help local students start off on the right foot in September

Our food pantry serves about 750 school-age children each month. Every August we distribute backpacks full of school supplies to the children of our food pantry clients. This initiative emphasizes the importance of education, defrays an additional cost faced by our clients, and helps kids start the year right.

Although there is still so much uncertainty about what school will look like in September, Interfaith still plans to provide these children with the supplies they will need to succeed in the new school year. Whether school will be taking place at their dining room tables or in classrooms, these children need essential supplies.

We need your help! Please consider donating NEW school supplies, or make a monetary donation to support this effort.
