School Supply Assistance for 2019-2020 School Year

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.
