Adams County School Districts
2021 Back to School Project
Support the children in your community!
More than 47% of school-age children in Adams County are eligible to participate in the free or reduced lunch program (2020 National School Lunch Program Report). Many of these families struggle to purchase school supplies for their children each year. We all know that our children need adequate supplies to be successful in school. Last year, United Way of Adams County took the lead of the annual Adams County Back to School project, by collecting and distributing backpacks and school supplies to families struggling to make ends. With the generous support of churches, businesses, organizations, and many individuals, the project has helped each year hundreds of students in grades K – 12 start the school year with the tools they need to succeed. Last year with the generous support of hundreds of donors, we raised $2,000 in monetary donations and received hundreds of school supply donations which enabled us to help more than 500 students.
Please help us give our children a positive start to the 2021 – 2022 school year.
