Submitted by Laura Shipman, HK Youth & Family Services

(July 25, 2022) — The Haddam-Killingworth Youth & Family Services Backpack Program for the 2022-2023 school year has begun. The program serves Haddam-Killingworth students who are in need of assistance with essential tools to learn in the classroom.  When students start off the school year prepared, they are more likely to succeed in school.  We look forward to partnering with our community to provide students a positive start to the upcoming school year.

To donate supplies, please use the bin we have placed outside our building; OR you may drop off any school supplies at Killingworth True Value, 228 Route 81 in Killingworth. Please be sure to leave your name and contact information.

We will be collecting from now through August 25, 2022. The following items are needed:  Pens, Pencils, Markers, Erasers, Pencil Cases, Pocket Folders, Notebooks, Highlighters, Post-Its, Rulers, Index Cards, Glue Sticks, Colored Pencils, Child & Teenage Backpacks, Lunch Boxes, Lined Paper and Three-Ring Binders.
