School Supply Assistance

Hastings Family Service assists families in school district 200 who are struggling with the cost of school supplies and helps them with this extra financial burden.  

Receiving School Supply Assistance

School supplies will be distributed August 20-22 and August 26-27, 2019.  Appointments can be made by calling 651-437-7134 starting August 13th.

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. They must also have knowledge of income and expenses for the household. 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.
