Backpack Program

The Social Services office, in conjunction with community organizations and the Salvation Army, want to ensure each eligible Newtown child will start off the school year feeling positive and prepared for a successful school experience.

If you would like to participate in the program, please call the Social Services office no later than July 15th.  To establish your need for assistance and financial eligibility, you must document your current household income and provide bank statements during an office appointment.
