Wondering how you can help needy kids heading back to school in Anne Arundel County this year?
The annual Back-to-School Program coordinated by Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services still needs donations for students for the upcoming school year.
The program annually matches donors with students in need of school supplieschools to help provide back-to-school supplies to students who need them. Donors purchase backpacks stocked with all the required materials, and then deliver the backpacks to the students’ respective schools.
“Our school system is continuing to grow, but we are also seeing a significant increase in the number of needy children and families we are serving,” said Teresa Tudor, AACPS’ Senior Manager for School and Family Partnerships. “Children who don’t have the necessary supplies for class are behind from the first day of school, and we as a county need to do everything we can to prevent that from happening.
