Catholic Charities is hosting their 26th Annual Back to School Fair which takes place on Wednesday, August 3 from 10 am to 6 pm at the Odeum in Villa Park.
To host this event successfully, they enlist over 150 volunteers, who generously donate their time to make a big difference for families in need.
What is the Back To School Fair?Catholic Charities' Back to School Fairs help prepare children from low-income households in DuPage County for a new school year by providing a variety of services, including free school supplies, immunizations, physicals, dental exams and more!
