Back to School Fairs

Back to School Fairs give kids a head start on the school year

Returning to school can be an exciting time for a child. It brings classmates back together for another year of growth and learning.

Back to school time can also be a financial hardship for some families. Children need school supplies, immunizations and health care, new clothes, and more. Bridging this need is what inspired Lutheran Community Services Northwest to partner with several Puget Sound communities to hold Back to School Fairs.
