  • See if your school district has a Resource Center. They have all kinds of things to help parents, especially school supplies.

  • Salvation Army for school supplies. The Goodwill for clothes. Some churches offer school supplies.

  • contact your local dhs & health depts for a list of low income family resources. if your indian some tribes offer an allowance for back to school clothes & free school supplies. until then hit the garage sales, thrift sores, clearance racks, craigslist, ebay, & check out your hometown church for any donation clothing. if you have kids in a 3yr old or 4yr old program @ headstart they can help you alot w/ financial assistance.
