Donate Backpacks and School Supplies for Area Kids in Need


Through August 3, Avon Grove Library has a collection box for the Maternal and Child Health Consortium’s annual Back-to-School Campaign for area children in need. Please consider donating supplies such as:

  • New backpacks, lunch boxes, or pencil cases (no zippered pouches, please)
  • Boxes of crayons (16 count), pencils (12 count), or colored pencils (12 count)
  • Yellow highlighters, notebooks, child-safe scissors, or glue sticks

Maternal and Child Health Consortium of Chester County will distribute your donations to area kids as part of their Family Benefits Program. MCHC workers also sign up uninsured children to get health insurance through Medicaid or CHIP.

Thank you for helping others in our community!
