Summer vacation is coming to a wrap as the 2019-2020 school year approaches, but being able to afford to buy new book bags, binders, folders and other school supplies can be a challenge for many families.
Every child deserves to come prepared for the first day of the new school year with proper school supplies. As it does every year, our awesome community has come together to collect and distribute school supplies for the students of Osceola County with a variety of school supply events throughout July and August.
