For All Seasons 2023 Back-to-School Supplies Giveaway and Resource Expo was a great success. Approximately 1,500 people attended, and we distributed more than 650 backpacks filled with materials to local students. A large cadre of dedicated staff, student volunteers, and resource providers worked together to make this a memorable evening for local kids and families. The Talbot Department of Social Services made a generous contribution towards the backpacks.
“Going ‘back to school’ is something a community does; it is not one family; it is not one business or even one school. It is all of us together. People and families these days are hurting. They need these supplies. We make it so every kid, regardless of socioeconomic status, can start the school year on their best foot,” said Jonathan Qvarnstrom, Outreach and Marketing Associate at For All Seasons.
