The grade-specific backpacks contain the basics, things like pencils, pens, crayons, scissors, glue, and paper.
With online enrollment underway for Salina USD 305 schools, organizers are putting the final touches on the 2016 Saline County Back to School Fair. This year’s event is Friday, July 29th.
Through the support of community sponsors, the event provides an opportunity to distribute free basic school supplies to over 1,800 income-eligible Saline County K-12 students.
At the Back to School Fair there will also be free school and sports physicals, dental screens, 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 2015-2016 school year and must qualify for free or reduced school lunches.
The Saline County Back to School Fair is scheduled for Friday, July 29th, at Lakewood Middle School. Registration is required and will begin at noon on the day of the event.
Volunteers who wish to lend a hand on Thursday or Friday are still needed, and there is still room for more vendors. For more information contact the Volunteer Hub 827-1312.
