K-12 Fitted for Success Program

The agency is now accepting applications for the K-12 Fitted for Success program.  700 children who live in Wood County will be provided with backpacks filled with grade appropriate school supplies, new shoes and socks and winter clothing items which may include coats, hats and gloves.

 

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 as well as verification of school enrollment for children 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 $4,300 or less in gross income per month.  The income amount varies based on family size.

 

Applications should be received by August 7, 2020 but will be accepted until 700 children are approved.  Assistance will be distributed to approved families in August.  Please complete the contact form to request an application.  Applications will be sent to you by mail.  You may also call 419-376-3488.
