Operation School Supplies 2019-2020
Operation School Supplies is a program that provides free backpacks and school supplies to Powhatan County children whose families are in economic need. Students must be enrolled in grades K-12 in the Powhatan County School District to be eligible to receive free school supplies.
Please complete the attached application in its entirety and submit it to Community Life Church, 2410 New Dorset Circle, Powhatan, VA 23139, on school supply distribution day. Your child/children may be eligible for a free backpack and school supplies if your family’s income is at or below 200% of the 2019 Federal Poverty Guidelines. You must attach one of the following documents with your application to be considered:
• If your child is eligible to receive SNAP or reduced price/free school lunches, attach your letter from Powhatan Social Services, or
• If your child is not eligible for the reduced/free lunch program, attach a copy of your 2018 Tax Return (delete social security numbers on tax return).
Please list all social services being received by the family so that your family’s need can be determined. School attendance, county residency, and economic need will be verified for determination of eligibility.
