SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
From 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m on Saturday, Aug. 8, Family Assistance Ministries will host a school supplies giveaway event for students of all ages who cannot afford to buy school essentials.
FAM is hoping to serve more than 700 people, according to a press release. Items that are most needed for children grades kindergarten through 12 include backpacks, which are usually the first to run out, pencils, spiral notebooks, calculators and rulers. Others items include pens, crayons, lunchboxes, paper, dividers and erasers.
If you cannot come by this week or for more information on the event, visit www.family-assistance.org or call 949.492.8477 for more information. The FAM Resource Center is located at 1030 Calle Negocio. Items are needed by Tuesday.
