2018 marks the 7th year that Community Hospital-Fairfax (CH-F) and Community Healthcare Foundation will host the Atchison County and Holt County Back to School Fairs. CH-F works with Community Services to supply children in need with school supplies for the upcoming school year. The Back to School Fairs will be held on August 8 and 9 in Holt and Atchison counties.
School supplies for the children who participate in the program are purchased with donations from individuals, families, and businesses. It costs approximately $30 per student to purchase a backpack, school supplies and toiletries such as shampoo and deodorant. Each child also receives a gift card for new shoes. Along with school supplies, organizations from around the state provide students and their families with important information, and services.
Community Hospital-Fairfax invites you to support this cause. A $30 donation will ensure that a child in your community arrives at school with the items they need to be successful.
Donations may be designated toward Atchison County or Holt County and mailed to Community Hospital-Fairfax, Attn. Back to School Fairs, PO Box 107, Fairfax, MO  64446. To volunteer your time or find out more about the Back to School Fairs, call Kris Umbarger at (660) 686-2350 or email KrisU@FairfaxMed.com.
