But for many struggling families, school supplies may not be in the budget.
That's where the Family Access Network comes in, known as FAN.
Bend LaPine Superintendent of Schools, Ron Wilkinson says there is help available for families.
Fan advocates are located in all public schools in Deschutes County.
They help families with food, shelter , clothing and school supplies among other things. Call your child's school and get in contact with the fan advocate, if you need help.
