Back to School

Inflation means back-to-school costs will be steeper than ever this year. A survey by accounting firm Deloitte shows parents expect to spend $661 per child on clothes and school gear, up 8% from the year before.

You can help local families in need by contributing to our annual school-supply drive.

You can bring in backpacks and supplies, such as notebooks, pens and pencils, to any of our three branches. In Tupper Lake, there’s an especially acute need for individually packaged snacks and drinks, such as juice boxes and water. We’ll distribute your donations to area school districts.

The drive begins August 1st and ends August 31st.
