Backpacks for Back-to-School Fair

backpackCommunity Action’s 27th Annual Back-to-School Fair will be held August 1 at the Topeka Salvation Army facility. Donations of new, unused backpacks are needed to help us support students and their families. Between March 13 and June 30, Community Action staff will gladly accept backpacks for grades K-8th grade at any of our three service centers: Avondale East CRC Care Center at 455 SE Golf Park Blvd., Hancock Service Center at 1000 SE Hancock, and, the Wheatley Early Childhood Education Center at 2400 SE Highland Avenue.

Please make sure backpacks are new and unused.  If you’d like to donate money to help purchase backpacks in bulk, you can use the DONATE buttons on our website, send a check to 455 SE Golf Park Blvd., Topeka, KS  66605 with “BTSF” in the memo line, or, bring cash to one of our service centers. Since Community Action is a 501c3 non-profit organization, your contribution may be tax deductible.
