Over one third of Montgomery County Public School children rely on free and reduced-price meals. For economically vulnerable families in Montgomery County, the cost of rent, food, utilities, AND school supplies and a backpack for each child in the family is just too much.
The Annual School Supplies Drive coordinated by Interfaith Works of Montgomery County provides new backpacks and school supplies to students who want to start the 2018-2019 school year ready to learn.
