To School

Every year Community Family Life Services (CFLS) provides school supplies to the families that we work with.


CFLS had an extremely successful Back to School Drive this year. With the generous contributions from various donors, we provided 62 children with school supplies. It was delightful to see the smiles on their faces as each child received a bountiful school supply bag.


Our Back to School event is an annual one. Every year in May, we start collecting Back to School items to be distributed in August.


The following lists the items needed for our annual Back to School event:

  • Pencil Box
