The grade-specific backpacks contain the basics, things like pencils, pens, crayons, scissors, glue, and paper.
Organizers are preparing to distribute 1,850 backpacks full of school supplies. The annual Saline County Back to School Fair is less than a month away.
Through the support of community sponsors, the event provides an opportunity to distribute free basic school supplies to 1,850 income- eligible Saline County K-12 students. At the Back to School Fair there will also be free school and sports physicals, dental screens, depression screenings, and children’s activities.
To qualify for the free basic school supplies, your child must live in Saline County and be a K-12 student in the 2014-2015 school year and must qualify for free or reduced school lunches.
The Back to School Fair is scheduled for Friday, August 8th at Lakewood Middle School.
