Pike County Children and Youth Services (CYS) is once again able to help students and families prepare for the upcoming school year with its annual ‘Back to School’ event!

On Friday, July 21, 2023, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Ann Street Park in Milford, PA, the CYS office will give away 100 backpacks and various school supplies including pens, pencils, notebooks, and folders. The event is free to the public. All Pike County students are encouraged to attend.
