For over 10 years, the Family Center of Durango has been assisting low-income families in La Plata County with the cost of school supplies. For many families in the area, sending students back to school in the fall can create a significant financial burden.
The growing list of necessary items can reach prices of up to $50 per student. For families with limited resources, this can mean having to make difficult sacrifices, such as putting food on the table, just to buy all the required supplies. The Family Center of Durango, in partnership with many local businesses, organizations and individuals, offers eligible students FREE basic school supplies to start off their year with the tools to succeed..
