Calling all parents! Patchwork Central's annual Back to School Sale will be on Saturday, August 2 from 9 am - 11 am (or while supplies last). According to Amy Rich, Co-Director of Patchwork Central, “We offer bags of supplies tailored to each grade K-5.

Bags contain a set of most supplies that a child will need. Bags for grades K-3 will cost $5 each and bags for grades 4-5 will cost $8 each. New socks and underwear and assorted school supplies will be available at low cost.

We do not require children to be present for parents to receive school supplies. By charging a small fee for the supplies, we hope to make the event positive for everyone. We help to make sure children are fully equipped for the school year in a way that is affordable, but we ask parents to take some responsibility and make a contribution toward the supplies.

We're also looking for volunteers to help on the day of the sale and financial contributions to help with the cost of the event.” Patchwork Central is located at 100 Washington Ave. in Evansville.

The organization was started in 1977 as a neighborhood outreach program for inner city children and has since grown to include a food pantry and offer a wide variety of unique children’s programs.
