Each year SCARCE bring thousands of books to the Catholic Charities Back-to-School Fair to give out to children from underprivileged families in DuPage County. It’s a big event so we depend heavily on the support of our volunteers to help set up/tear down and staff our book tables.

This year, the Back to School Fair is on Wednesday, August 2nd from 11am-6pm at St. Francis High School in Wheaton.

We need volunteers on the following days:

Volunteers must be at least 14 years old and comfortable being on their feet. For set-up and tear down, volunteers must be able to lift. Volunteers that speak Spanish or another language are a big help during the event!

Together, we can help DuPage families get ready for school!
