Frequently Asked Questions:
Are school supply donations needed from the community?
~ No, the OtterCares Foundation purchases all of the supplies needed for Pack2School. If you, your business or community group would like to support students in our community by collecting school supplies, please contact Beth Higgins at the PSD Partnership office for other opportunities: firstname.lastname@example.org
I received a Pack2School Qualification Voucher from a local agency; do I still need to bring one of the documents listed above?
~ No, you only need to bring the signed Qualification Voucher and a photo ID. Each child needing school supplies must also attend with you.
Can a parent attend Pack2School without their child and pick up supplies or have a backpack reserved for their child?
~ No, Students must be in Kindergarten through 12th grade at a Poudre School District School and must be present to receive supplies. No supplies will be given to parents and only one backpack is allowed per student.
Supplies will only be distributed on August 8 and no backpacks will be reserved for people who cannot attend on that day.
When is the best time of the day to attend Pack2School?
~ Supplies will be available all day for qualified students and families. To avoid longer lines, consider attending in the afternoon.
My child attends a school in the Thompson School District (Loveland & Berthoud). Can they receive supplies at Pack2School?
~ No, the Pack2School event is for Poudre School District students only. The Thompson Education Foundation does distribute backpacks and supplies to students in TSD during each school’s registration dates in August. Back to school registration information for TSD can be found on the district’s website at www.thompsonschools.org
I have other questions, who can I contact?
