Back to School Fair

Dear Potential Volunteer,

We would like to invite you to participate in Oshkosh’s annual community Back 2 School Fair. This event helps approximately 1,000 disadvantaged youth in Oshkosh and the surrounding areas to prepare for the upcoming school year. Children attending will receive school supplies, along with personal hygiene items, clothing and haircuts.

The fair will take place on Thursday, August 17, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m at North High School at 1100 W Smith Ave (which is an air conditioned facility).

In order to make this event a success volunteers are needed for the following

  • Set up: help organize the rooms the 2 days before the fair (8/15/17 & 8/16/17)
  • Guides: escort families through the resource fair and help them pick up their items
  • Oversee the tables: stocking clothing, school supplies, shoes & hygiene items

If you are available to volunteer for this great event please follow this link to sign up: Sign up form or call Ruth Mauritz at (920) 424-2146 to sign up with her over the phone.

We look forward to seeing you at the Fair!
