Giving disadvantaged youth a fair start on the school year
The annual Community Back to School Fair assists over 1000 disadvantaged youth who live in Oshkosh, Winneconne, and the surrounding areas prepare for the upcoming school year. Children receive items such as backpacks stuffed with school supplies and personal care items, haircuts, and clothing, to prepare them to start the school year. Families participating in this event must be referred to the Back to School Fair by an associated organization.
