The purpose of the School Essentials Fund is to provide money to schools so that guidance counselors can purchase smaller, essential items for students without going through the process of submitting a request for assistance. Appropriate items might include, but are not limited to, school clothes, shoes, sneakers, winter gear, rain gear, school supplies, backpacks, lunchboxes, or any cafeteria food (breakfast, lunch or snack). Each school in our 6 towns receives payments totaling $500/school year. That's a donation of up to $4000 per school year. If want more information about this fund, contact us below. Or feel free to donate directly to this fund, if you would like.
