Ken-Ton Closet program provides children with school supplies

The Ken-Ton Closet’s Back to School Supply Program provides basic school supplies at no cost to children who live and attend a school within the Village of Kenmore or Town of Tonawanda.

Children who live in the district but are placed in other schools by the district for special needs also qualify. According to a prepared statement, preference is given to children who qualify for free or reduced-price lunches.

In order to receive materials, an individual must fill out an online form, which is available at www.kentoncloset.org. The form also includes a supplies list.

This year, the Ken-Ton Closet will be supplying specific items for grades preK-2, 3-4, 5-7 and 8-12.

According to the statement, children in elementary and middle school will also receive a “homework bag” of supplies that can be kept at home for students to complete work there.

Items can be requested by parents or guardians, students, district faculty/staff or other qualifying community organization.

Supplies will be dropped off directly to the child’s school or the Family Support Center with the child’s name on it. According to the statement, the Closet will not deliver to other locations.

The online link to the form will remain active until 250 orders have been received. The Closet delivers items directly to the schools before the first day of school for orders received by Aug. 30.

Orders are on a first-come, first-served basis.
