With the start of the 2023-2024 school year already just under a month away, Altrusa of Door County held their 2023 Back to School Fair.
The Back to School Fair was back for its 24th year of in-person festivities, as the fair returned last year for the first time since 2019 before the pandemic. The event has grown throughout the years, and was shown at the event today, as families in need were able to receive the supplies needed to begin their new school year. Everyone who helped out the families and students in need were volunteers for the day, as many volunteers mentioned how helping out and getting the youth the right supplies to make sure they have a good education was all the satisfaction they needed.
The Altrusa of Door County Back to School Fair has grown in numbers throughout the 24 years, as the first year of the fair served 50 students. This year's fair was scheduled to serve just under 600 students from 9 am until 2 pm.
