The Richland County Children's Auxiliary:
Annual School Supplies & Christmas Projects
The Richland County Children’s Auxiliary is located in Mansfield, Ohio. Our mission is: Working together to better the lives of children in Richland County. We serve children in the following ways:
The New Store
The New Store provides new clothing, accessories, and personal hygiene items to school children in grades K-8. Children are referred by their school principals and select social service agencies. Parents call for an appointment at one of our “dressing days.” Volunteers help students select properly fitted, stylish clothing.
Each Christmas the Auxiliary assists nearly 1,000 children by coordinating donors to provide children in need with many clothing and toy items. Participants are referred by local social service case workers. This event is supported by many generous donors.
In August, we supply 500 children with a backpack filled with age appropriate school supplies to start the new school year off right.
