Summer 2021 backpack distribution
As you may know, last year we made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person event to ensure public safety amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead, we chose a different approach to the Back to School effort–one that is community organization-focused and wide-reaching. In this model, organizations have an integral role in signing up and distributing backpacks to their assigned families as we remain committed to providing book bags filled with school supplies to K-12th grade students living in the greater Coatesville community.
This year, we have chosen to continue with this approach, with everyone’s safety and well-being in mind.
There are 2 options to sign up to receive a backpack from the Coatesville Back to School effort this year:
- We have chosen the following community-serving organizations to register persons for their own distribution this summer. Families can contact these organizations to secure a backpack for their students:
Bridge Academy and Community Center
Coatesville Youth Initiative
Coatesville Center for Community Health
Chester County Women’s Services
Chester County Futures
Coatesville Area School District
Coatesville Kids to College
Regency Park Apartments
Hutchinson Memorial UAME Church
Coatesville Coalition Event
- Starting July 19th, you can register your family WITHOUT signing up with a partner organization. Visit https://forms.gle/VckaVXmiTgwxRvZv9 to register by August 2nd.
