The annual Ready to Learn Fair helps kids start the year feeling proud! ASF and community partners provide FREE back-to-school essentials including backpacks and supplies, books, gently used clothing, haircuts, new underwear and socks, resources, and information. A team of dedicated volunteers puts the fair on with the support of the Anacortes School District and funding from ASF.
