Back to School Fair

The Oshkosh Community Back to School Fair provides 1,000 low-income Oshkosh students an equal opportunity to be better equipped with the necessary supplies to be successful in school. Each student receives a backpack with school supplies, a new outfit of school-appropriate clothing and hygiene items. Local hairstylists are on-site at the Fair to provide haircuts at no cost to students in attendance. A voucher is provided for shoes at Rogan’s in Oshkosh.

The Back to School Fair is held in August every year. You MUST have a time reserved in order to attend the Back to School Fair so sign up ASAP! No walk-ins will be accepted. If your child is a Club member and you still need assistance getting school supplies please contact Danielle Bittelman at or (920) 233-1414 ext 124.

The 2024 Back to School Fair will take place on August 14-15.

This fair takes place at Oshkosh North High School at 1100 W Smith Ave. Many volunteers are needed to ensure the Back to School Fair is a success each year. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up at the following link: Volunteer Sign Up
