Anne Arundel County’s Back to School Program

Remember the excitement of the first day of school? Your new notebooks, pencils and backpack?

Share that memory by assisting a child who needs help getting ready for the next school year. For over 27 years we have helped elementary school children who qualify for Federal Lunch assistance in Anne Arundel County.

The Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services partners with Anne Arundel County Public Schools to help more than 4,500 children.
Here’s how the program works:
Donors (individuals, businesses, churches, schools, organizations, and groups) are matched with children in need of school supplies and are provided a standardized list of the required supplies. The donors purchase supplies and backpacks and deliver the items to the Guidance Office at the elementary schools the 4th week in August.


On average, school supplies cost between $50 and $75, depending upon the child’s grade in school.
It’s easy to help! Simply fill out the Back to School Donor Form below and submit it to us. Beginning in July, we’ll e-mail you the name of a child (ren) you can help.  Please check your SPAM filter for correspondence.
