K-12 Fitted for Success Program

The Wood County Department of Job and Family Services is now accepting applications for the K-12 Fitted for Success program for the 2024-2025 school year.  680 children who live in Wood County will be provided with backpacks filled with grade appropriate school supplies, new shoes and socks and winter coats.

Assistance is provided on a first come/first serve basis.  Proof of household income, Birth Certificates or other proof of citizenship and Social Security cards for all family members must be provided.  Families must have an income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level to qualify.  For a family of 4, this about $5,200 or less in gross income per month.  The income amount varies based on family size.  Families do not have to verify school enrollment for this year’s application.

Applications should be received by August 2, 2024 but will be accepted until 680 children are approved.  Assistance will be distributed to approved families in August.  Please complete the contact form to request an application to be mailed.  You may also print the application by clicking this link.  Complete the application, sign and return by mail to P.O. Box 679 Bowling Green, OH 43402 or drop off at 1928 E. Gypsy Lane Road, Bowling Green.  Completed applications may be returned by mail or dropped off at the above address.  A secure outdoor drop box is available 24/7.
