Marion County children and families in need of school supplies and essential items


Traditionally, the Kids Fair is an opportunity for Marion County foster children and families to participate in a fun-filled day to close out summer vacation and prepare for a new school year. Although this year’s event will look different due to COVID-19, attendees will still have the opportunity to receive free school supplies and essential items as they have in previous years.
