School Supply Assistance

Hastings Family Service helps families living in Independent School District 200 who need assistance with the cost of school supplies.

Receiving School Supply Assistance

Call 651-437-7134 to schedule an appointment.

School Supply Assistance appointments will be in-person.   

To receive school supplies, the parent or guardian is required to show a picture ID and a current piece of mail postmarked within two weeks or a current utility bill. Each household must complete an intake form. 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 our service area.
