The Back to School fair is a one-stop event for health and social services for DuPage County families with children living on low incomes.

Each year SCARCE bring thousands of books to the Back-to-School Fair to give out to underprivileged children. Volunteers are needed to help set-up/tear down and staff our book tables at this event. Your efforts will help thousands of children in DuPage County get off to a good start for the school year!
