Hastings Family Service assists families in school district 200 who are struggling with the cost of school supplies.
School supply distribution will take place on August 20-22 and August 26-27, 2019. An appointment is required. Appointments can be made by calling 651-437-7134 starting August 13.
To receive school supplies:
- The parent or guardian must make the appointment and is required to show a picture ID and a current piece of mail postmarked within the two weeks or a current utility bill. They must also have knowledge of income and expenses for the household.
- To give permission to another legal adult to bring your children to the distribution appointment, they must have a written permission slip signed by the parent or guardian, a photo ID, and the other items listed.
- For each child receiving supplies proof of enrollment in school is required. If a child is attending school outside of ISD 200, the proof of enrollment MUST show a home address within HFS's service area.
For additional information, please visit the School Supply Assistance page.
