Back-to-School 2010

Is your child ready for school?  
Summer will soon be coming to a close and the first day of school is right around the corner!  Our 2-1-1 information services provide easy access to a broad variety of resources that can help families plan for their child's Back-to-School needs including: 
school supplies, immunizations, school physicals, health insurance for children, voluntary Pre-K, before/after school care, dental exams, health and nutrition information, internet safety for children, school information, and mentoring & tutoring programs.

This is also a great time of the year to provide an invaluable resource to your community. You can get involved by donating school supplies for children in need.  These donations can include such items as shoes, pencils, paper, notebooks, tissues, 3-ring binders, etc.  Local agencies welcome these items, and your generosity can bring brighter futures to children in need.
