BRGNS accepting donations for back-to-school needs

lack River Good Neighbor Services is initiating a new program to support school children and is requesting donations for back to school needs.Black River Good Neighbors logo

Audrey Bridge, executive director, said, “Over the years we have noticed that back to school time places a huge financial burden on our clients with children. Back to school supply purchases further stress already tight monthly budgets. When there are several children in a family, equipping them can seem impossible to families in need.”

Specific back-to-school needs vary with grade level and the school attended. Probably the costliest general requirement is a backpack. Families seeking back to school support can submit an application to BRGNS at 37B Main St. starting immediately. Then, when the schools make known the requirements for each child, families can share those requirements with the staff at BRGNS. BRGNS assists families in Ludlow, Cavendish, Mount Holly and Plymouth.

For a list of items to donate or for an application, please visit our website at, or drop into our store at 37B Main St., Ludlow. For further information, please call 802-228-3663.
