    SERVOLUTION: Back-to-School Assistance

    Servolution will hold a back-to-school event on Saturday, August 18th, time and location to be announced, for families who are in need of assistance in getting their children ready for the new school year. Resources such as tennis shoes, haircuts, school supplies, and groceries will be available. Families do not need to provide proof of need, nor do they need to meet specific financial requirements in order to participate. Students must, however, be eRegistered for the 2018–19 school year in PowerSchool to receive resources.
