Pre-Register your students today for a free backpack and school supplies!
Bloomfield, IA – Mark your calendars! The 2022 Davis County Back to School Resource Fair will be held as a drive-thru style event again this year on Tuesday, August 2nd at the Davis County Fairgrounds. In its seventh year, the Davis County Back to School Resource Fair helps alleviate the financial strain for parents and guardians with the costs associated to sending students back to school. The event provides Davis County students a free backpack and school supplies to start the year prepared.
“Although it still isn’t our ‘normal’ in-person Back to School style event, we are excited to still provide our Davis County Kindergarten – 6th grade students with a free backpack and school supplies to kick off the upcoming school year,” commented Devyn Pitlick, Public Relations Coordinator at Davis County Hospital & Clinics. “The drive-thru style event has worked really well for us under the circumstances the last couple of years; we hope to have a great turnout again this year!”
For parents interested in signing their student(s) up for school supplies and a backpack, the committee is requesting they pre-register their students online at: https://forms.office.com/r/2i5uZfBihV. They have availability to provide 300 students with supplies and backpacks, first come, first serve. The pre-registration deadline is Friday, May 27th. The committee asks parents/guardians to fill out a form for each individual student K-6th grade. The first 150 students to be registered will also get a FREE pair of shoes; don’t wait to sign-up!
“We ask that everyone use the online registration form to sign-up. If you don’t have access to the internet to register your student(s), please call 641-664-7083,” said Pitlick. “We want everyone to participate that is interested, no matter their financial status. All students deserve the chance to start the school year off with the necessary supplies to succeed.”
For those who pre-register by May 27th, they will be directed to pick up their children’s supplies on Tuesday, August 2nd from 5pm – 6pm at the Davis County Fairgrounds.
The Back to School Resource Fair is completely funded by private donations and in-kind contributions including a grant from the Davis County Community Foundation.
