AN ANNUAL BACKPACK AND SCHOOL SUPPLIES DRIVE WITH A GOAL OF HELPING ALL CHILDREN BEGIN THE SCHOOL YEAR PREPARED AND READY TO LEARN.

The Pettengill House collects brand new school supplies from mid-June through mid-August each year for students in pre-k through high school who attend school in the Amesbury, Newburyport, Triton, and Pentucket school districts. The Pettengill House distributes these new backpacks and school supplies the third week in August.

If you need assistance through this program, please call The Pettengill House Resource Center at (978) 792-5205 to schedule an appointment.  Appointments are made beginning late July for August pick-up.  Social workers can help new clients with these supplies throughout the school year.
