Back-To-School Program

Help us send kids back to school in Danbury and Greater New Milford with the supplies they need for a successful school year! 


2023 marks more than 30 years of the Back-to-School Program in Danbury and Greater New Milford. This year, we’re providing more than 500 kids with the school supplies and essentials they need.

With your help, we can ensure every student has the opportunity to succeed in school.

Become a sponsor today and give to students from Danbury, New Milford, Bridgewater, Kent, Roxbury, Sherman, Washington, and Warren!
