Oshkosh Back to School Fair
Over 900 children checked off a majority of items on their school supply lists during the 18th annual Oshkosh Back to School Fair held at North High School on Thursday, August 6, 2015. Almost 100 volunteers helped out not only on the day of the fair, but also the days prior to the fair, setting up rooms and packing school supplies. CCDET staff member, Ruth Mauritz, was involved in setting up this year’s fair and coordinating school supplies for this event!
Children were outfitted with a backpack, a new outfit, socks, underwear and prepackaged bags of hygiene supplies and school supplies. Stylists representing more than 10 local salons provided free haircuts to the children and the Tri-County Dental mobile clinic provided free dental screenings.
More than 20 businesses and community organizations contributed items or monetary donations.
