Backpacks & School Snacks

Updated: Jul 26

One of my goals as a Community Health Worker is to ensure all Chariho area residents have an equal opportunity to live a physically and mentally healthy life and provide access to resources to do so.

We hope to make back-to-school a little easier by providing school supplies, backpacks and snacks to residents of Charlestown, Hopkinton and Richmond who sign up for them below. The deadline to sign up is Saturday, August 6th. Spaces may be limited.

According to educators, access to school supplies is critical to creating an equal learning environment for students and can result in an increase in preparedness, in-class participation and a significant increase in student self-esteem.

If you are in the position to donate new backpacks, school supplies, snacks or gift cards to purchase these items, don't hesitate to get in touch with me amy@charihoyouth.org

If your family could use additional assistance with health, food or finances, please reach out by email, phone or text message at (401) 212-2741.
