CANHelp is planning a drive-by Back to School Fair on Friday August 7, 2020 at Sulphur Springs Middle School from 3-6pm. However, the deadline for families to register for the backpacks with school supplies is nearing. With 775 students already on the list to receive the free assistance, sign-ups must be completed by August 2 so that everyone can be served. Donations from the public will also make this massive project a reality. This year, it costs about $25 to fill the backpack with school supplies, and thus, this year CANHelp is asking for monetary donations only. Businesses, organizations, Sunday School groups, clubs, communities and neighborhoods as well as individuals are invited to help in this cause. There is one website to accommodate sign-ups as well as donations, that’s www.canhelponline.org. If your family wishes to register your students, click on Register. If you would like to sponsor Backpacks or donate money for Backpacks, click on Sponsor or Donate. This year, Yantis ISD students are included with Hopkins County school students who can qualify for the free back to school assistance, to be made available at the drive-by Fair on August 7, 2020.

CANHelp offices are open to assist from 8am-4:30pm, Mon-Fri with available computers if families do not have computer access to register.Also, if anyone needs to reach out to CANHelp for more information, they can email [email protected] and we will get back with them as soon as possible.
