Bring your kiddos to this one-day event where we will be handing out backpacks and other school supplies to kiddos in need—you might even catch Tiny the dinosaur while you're getting your supplies for the new school year. Take what you need. Child must be present and live in Thornton to receive supplies.

Please bring proof of address, which can include: driver's license or other government-issued ID, utility bill or phone bill, car registration, voter registration card, statement form a major creditor, or recent Adams County tax notice—if you're having trouble producing your proof of address, give us a call by August 6th at 4 PM. We want all Thornton residents to be able to receive supplies without barriers.
