Bridges Back to School & Health Fair


Many students in the West Plains area need assistance each year with back to school items. On August 10th, the Bridges Program will host a Back to School & Health Fair to provide students with shoes, clothes, backpacks, hygiene items, and other resources to help them be successful in school.

The West Plains community is rallying together to supply these items for our students at the fair. Can you help?

If you can donate toward this event, please choose a way to give from the options available.  We have several organizations/businesses helping provide backpacks, hygiene kits, shoes, and food, but we need assistance with new clothing, hygiene kits, dental, haircuts, and school supplies.

If you, your business, or your organization would like to sponsor the event, please contact Cyndi Wright at 417-256-6150 or

For those needing assistance, please visit the following Event Brite link to register for the fair.
