Thanks to our partnerships with businesses, individuals, and organizations, Sieda Community Action was able to provide school supplies to more than 500 students. Sieda’s School Supply Program distributes in Jefferson, Wapello, and to any families in need in our other counties to help low-income families with the concerns of preparing their children for school. This program provides supplies and backpacks for students in Kindergarten through 12th Grade at no cost to the caretakers. To qualify for school supplies, clients must have been income-eligible. School supplies were distributed at our Sieda offices in Ottumwa, Centerville, and Fairfield.
