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.
