School Supply Drive

 

It’s that time again. We can almost smell the freshly sharpened pencils. We’re collecting school supplies in the Fair State Brewing Cooperative taproom from now until August 8th.

All donated school supplies will go to Hennepin County students in need. You can donate individual supplies or a backpack full of supplies. We just ask that all donated items are new and unused. Below are suggestions of supplies needed per age group.

Why Donate?
This program provides backpacks and basic school supplies for children in need to help them start school with the tools they need to achieve school success. Providing school supplies for children encourages them to perform better in school. Being prepared on that first day of school promotes higher student engagement which leads to successful day to day practices.
