Skoufis Hosts Back-to-School Supplies Distribution for Orange County Students

Senator James Skoufis (D-Orange County) joined the Orange County community on a clear, sun-drenched Wednesday afternoon to host his annual back-to-school supplies distribution. Nearly 200 backpacks filled with supplies were handed out in Orange Square Veterans Park in Port Jervis to families, all in an effort to ensure local students are best prepared for the start of school.

The event’s success was made possible through the generous contributions from dozens of Orange County residents, the Port Jervis Police Department, the Orange County Chinese Association, and Madison Square Garden. Contributions included a variety of backpacks, notebooks, folders, binders, pencils, art supplies, and much more.

“Access to essential educational materials should not be constrained by financial circumstances,” said Skoufis. “I am delighted to witness local communities come together to provide our children with the proper tools to enter the school year with confidence and ease. My heartfelt gratitude extends to all the folks who generously contributed to this year’s school supply drive.”
