S.H.A.R.E. Event

(Students & Staff Helping to Acquire Resources for Everyone)

Our goal is to support families in need across Perry Township during back to school time, which can be very financially demanding.  Perry Township Schools and our community partners provide students with many of the supplies and services they need for an outstanding start to the school year at our S.H.A.R.E. Event.  The event will be held on Saturday, July 15, 2023 from 10:00am-1:00pm at Southport Elementary School (261 Anniston Drive) and we hope to serve at least 700 students with

  • Basic school supplies and backpacks
  • Immunizations
  • information for activities and services offered by local organizations
  • the chance to fill out forms needed for the beginning of the school year (such as free and reduced school lunch applications & registration forms)

Students who have qualified for meal and textbook assistance will be sent an invitation via EventBrite to register for the event early in July.
