The start of school can be stressful at the best of times. The added trauma and challenges of the pandemic coupled with living with domestic abuse could make those first few days very frightening. Through MSCFV's Back-to-School Program, the children of the clients we work with are given items to help make that transition a little easier. Each client is provided with a backpack full of school supplies to get them started.

We are currently collecting the following items for the backpacks:

  • Pencils/LED#2
  • Colored Pencils
  • Pencil Sharpeners
  • Erasers (pink bevel and pencil top)
  • Pencil Pouches/Boxes
  • Crayons
  • Dry Erase Markers
  • Dry Erase Erasers
  • Highlighters
  • Markers
  • Washable Markers
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors (Fiskar Brand with a blunt tip)
  • Composition Notebooks
  • Spiral Notebooks
  • Ear Buds and Headphones
  • Plastic and Paper Pocket Folders
  • Ring Binders (1", 1.5", 2", and 2.5")
  • Boxes of Tissues
  • Hand Wipes
  • Hand Sanitizers
  • Zip Lock Bags (all sizes)
  • Bookbags
  • Gift Cards for the quintessential first day of school outfit and shoes (as well as the required gym uniform)

Items may be dropped off at our Easton Office before August 16th. To find out more, contact Carol at or 410-690-3222.

Your gifts of school supplies will help some of our community's most vulnerable children experience the hope and excitement that going to school could provide. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
