Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 HOPEfest Back to School Resource Fair event has been canceled. Since our exhibitors are our main source for school supplies, we are doing a "virtual" back to school event and accepting online donations for the purchase of school supplies. Backpacks stuffed with school supplies will be distributed to families in need when students physically go back to school. We will give updates on when and where the distribution will take place.
To donate for the purchase of backpacks and school supplies, please use the DONATE drop-down menu on this page. To ship backpacks and school supplies directly from a merchant (Amazon, Dollar Days, Ebay, Office Depot, Staples, Target, Walmart, etc.), please use the contact form and we will email you instructions for the shipping address closest to the counties we serve.
