Supplies for Scholars

United Way of Delaware County’s Strengthening Families is once again hosting Supplies For Scholars.
This year’s event will be different due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Backpacks and binders for Delaware County’s school children will be prepacked with supplies and delivered to each school for distribution by grade level. 

There are volunteer opportunities for adults to help with the prepacking of backpacks/binders and distribution to the schools.

Thursday, July 16. Two shifts available.
10 AM – 12 PM or 2 PM – 4 PM.

Friday, July 17. Two shifts available.
10 AM – 12 PM (FULL) or 2 PM- 4 PM.

A total of approximately 2,200 backpacks and/or binders will be packed. 

We will be practicing safe social distancing guidelines while we are packing supplies.
30 volunteers per shift will be broken into separate groups of 10.
Each group of 10 will be assigned a separate entrance into the Willis Education Center.
Entrance information will be sent in the reminder email before the event.
There will be a health assessment at volunteer check-in.
Masks are required while in the Willis Education Center.
