Being prepared for the new school year sets up students for success. However, it can be difficult to get everything you need for the classroom when you can’t afford it. Thankfully there are non-profit organizations in Stark County that offer affordable options, help families pay for items or offer free school supplies.
For example, have you ever considered shopping at stores like Goodwill during back-to-school time? Goodwill carries many gently used items like bookbags, but also stocks brand new items like pencils and glue as school approaches. To find the store nearest you, see the list below or visit GoodwillGoodSkills.org.
