This past school year, hundreds of children in Greater Fall River went to school with very limited supplies.

We’ve teamed up with the United Way of Greater Fall River, and the Fall River Rotary Club and our sponsors St. Anne Hospital's Fernandez Center for Children & Families Infant and Toddler Program, and Care Free Homes to help get crucial school supplies into the hands of the kids who are most in need this September.

Here's how you can help stuff 200 backpacks with school supplies for kids most in need this September:

  • Make a cash donation or send a Walmart gift card to United Way of Greater Fall River, PO Box 2550, Fall River MA 02722
  • Drop off donations of new school supplies at our School Supply Collection at the Fall River Walmart on Saturday, August 10, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. As a bonus, anyone who makes a donation of new school supplies or Walmart gift cards will be entered to win a pair of Jonas Brother tickets for their August 17 show.
