Giving disadvantaged youth a fair start on the school year

The annual Oshkosh-Winneconne Community Back To School Fair assists over 1,000 low-income youth who live in Oshkosh, Winneconne, and the surrounding areas. This program helps prepare them for the upcoming school year. They serve youth from 4K to 12th grade by providing backpacks, clothing, hygiene items, haircuts, and the necessary school supplies for the appropriate grade level.

Pre-Registration is REQUIRED: Families participating in this event must be referred to the Back to School Fair by an associated organization.

We need volunteers!

  • Setting up/organizing the rooms the 2 days before the fair
