On Saturday, Altrusa International of Door County will be holding their 21st annual Back to School Fair. The project helps Door County children and families be prepared for the first day of school by providing them with necessary items. During the event, over 600 qualified children will receive backpacks, a box with grade specific school supplies, a school spirit shirt, toiletries, and a certificate for gym shoes and socks. Altrusa member Nancy Kexel-Calabresa says this isn’t the only educational event the organization does, they have a Reading Friends program as well.
This event is not open to the public, but you can always donate money to Altrusa for next year’s fair.
