2-1-1 Resource Recap: School Supplies For K-12 Students
United Way of Larimer County's Education Vision is that, "All children in Larimer County will be prepared for post-secondary success in school, work, and life."
One of the fundamental building blocks for successful students of all ages is having the appropriate supplies for school. If your student, kindergarten through 12th grade, is in need of school supplies please access one of the following resources to help create a strong educational foundation as well as get them prepared and excited to be back in the classroom.
At the Northside Aztlan Community Center located at 112 East Willow Street in Fort Collins.
