Back-to-School Backpacks and School Supplies

Pocono Mountains United Way: Bridging the Gap for School Supplies

Pocono Mountains United Way is committed to ensuring every Monroe County student has the tools they need to succeed in school. That’s why we run an annual backpack distribution program in partnership with local agencies.

Here’s how it works:

Our program has grown significantly since its inception!

While we do not distribute backpacks directly to the public through this program, our partner agencies will be hosting distribution events throughout the County!
