The Trumbull County Department of Job and Family Services (TCDJFS) will be distributing 1,200 backpacks full of school supplies to families from Wednesday to Friday.

TCDJFS received PRC and TANF funding to assist Trumbull County families during the pandemic with back to school supplies. The agency procured 1,200 backpacks as well as 22 pallets totaling 16,000 pounds of school supplies.

Vouchers with dates and appointment times were mailed out to the 1,200 deemed eligible instructing them on where to go to pick up their school supplies.

Eligible people were randomly selected from a pool of families with schoolchildren aged six through 17.

Drive-through pickup is located at 280, N. Park Ave. in Warren.
