For families with school-aged children, enrolled in a Piatt County school, we have implemented a backpack and school supply assistance program: Starting Out Right. Each backpack is custom filled based on the child's grade level and their school's supply list. This way each child is given the best opportunity to start out right in August.
Please use the online application at http://www.asmallhand.org/starting-out-right.html
Once the application is submitted, someone from A Small Hand will contact you. Applications will be accepted through July 31st. Distribution of backpacks will be in early August.
