We're asking for your help to STUFF THE TRUCK with school supplies, clothing, and hygiene items on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, from 11 am to 6 pm at the Walmart Supercenter parking lot in Oshkosh.
351 S. Washburn St.
Oshkosh, WI 54904
All of the items collected at the truck will be distributed to local students at the Community Back to School Fair. This year 1,000 students are expected to participate in the Fair, so we need HUNDREDS of each item on our shopping list. 46% of Oshkosh residents struggle to secure basic needs like shelter, food, transportation, and utilities. This can create a barrier to purchasing the school supplies a child needs for a new school year. Not having to choose between a meal and school supplies is a meaningful contribution to families in need.

Rooted in the belief that a strong educational foundation can break the cycle of poverty, the Oshkosh-Winneconne Back to School Fair program provides grade-specific school supplies, hygiene products, and other goods and services to help low-income students prepare for the new school year and better achieve academic success.
Referrals are required to participate in the Back to School Fair.
