Lifespan Opportunities in Washington and Hancock Counties

2019 School Year Backpack Program

Thu, Jul 25th, 2019

by DCP Staff

Downeast Community Partners administers a program that helps low income families in Hancock and Washington counties with backpacks and school supplies. We have approximately 125 to 150 students from grades K-12 who apply for assistance.

In order to help these children prepare for school, we rely on donations from our community. Below is a list of the items we need to do this important work. We need everything from backpacks to supplies to fill them. If it is easier for you to have us do the shopping, a monetary donation will help us get what we need.
