Back to School Fair
Helping DuPage County kids get ready for school
Every August SCARCE gives out gently used books and new school supplies to children from low income families in DuPage County at the Catholic Charities Back to School Fair.
There are a variety of ways you can help:
- Donate gently used books or unopened school supplies. Books should be in excellent condition and school supplies should be new.
- Pack up and transport books on the day before the event.
- Distribute books and school supplies at the fair. Help children of all ages find books to take home.
- Help organize materials before the fair and clean up after the fair.
- Make a donation. to support our efforts! Preparing for this impactful event is a year-round effort by SCARCE staff and requires all hands for the big day.
