Since 1989, the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services has partnered with the Board of Education on the Back To School Program, which helps children who attend the County’s public elementary schools by providing them with backpacks and school supplies.
Donors (individuals, businesses and/or groups) are matched with children in need of school supplies and are provided a list of the required supplies. The donors purchase supplies and backpacks and deliver the items to the Guidance Office at the elementary schools the 2nd week in August. This year there are many more children than donors. We are making one last effort to spread the word so that all children are able to participate in the Back To School Program.
