Ready For Back-To-School? One Local Charity Aims To Make Sure Everyone Is.

We Care Eau Claire provides free school supplies to families in need, with an upcoming event in August

Are you ready for back-to-school season? We Care Eau Claire – an organization dedicated to helping students in the Eau Claire Area School District succeed – will host a charitable event to benefit families who need an extra hand in preparing for heading back to school in the Chippewa Valley on Monday, Aug. 15 from 4:30-7:30pm.

Families are invited to the Farmer's Market pavilion at Phoenix Park to get a backpack filled with the required ECASD school supplies for the year. Feed My People food pantry will supply families with yummy groceries at the event, and a local Goodwill has put a coupon in the backpacks to help with school uniforms and any other school-related needs. Other community organizations will be present with additional resources for students and families.
