School supplies can be an expense that puts a strain on a family’s budget. Resources exist in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County to help lightlen!


BACK TO SCHOOL RESOURCE FAIR throughout the mall! Gather information about local nonprofit, community-based and other organizations that serve local families!

SCHOOL SUPPLIES will be available at no cost for any students that need them! Harrisonburg City and Rockingham County Public School students are welcome to “shop” for school supplies from a pop-up storefront. First come, first served. WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!


Certain school supplies will be collected and sent directly to schools for classroom use. This will include items primarily for classroom use or in classroom-size quantities (ex: dry erase markers, sharpie markers, gallon size glue, tissues) 

We’ll set aside a number of essential items for teachers to keep in the classroom for just in case: pens, pencils, markers, crayons, etc.

For Resource Providers:

Nonprofit organizations serving Harrisonburg and Rockingham County residents are invited to have a table to distribute information and resources to students and families. Organizations are invited to either have a table or provide informational items to display on a general resource table.

For Community Members & Business Partners:

We are looking for volunteers to help collect school supplies in your office or from friends, family and/or neighbors, or even in your faith community! We will have collection points all round the City and County.
