Back to School

What is Back to School?

Our Back to School ministry is part of a partnership with the Assistance League and Carlsbad Central Office to make sure every child in Eddy County is able to start the school year with the supplies that they need and new clothing. We supply everything that is on the school supply list, two summer outfits, one winter outfit, and shoes when available. This program is for low income families, who can keep up with their bills but may not have the extra income for school supplies. We will be asking for IDs and proof of income for all the adults in the household to confirm the need for assistance.
