Back-to-school event in the Grand Augusta region on Sunday August 15
As summer draws to a close, the start of the 2020/20221 school year is just around the corner
As sad as it is to see the end of summer, I am excited and hope the kids have a semi-normal next school year. What’s not so exciting is the long list of school supplies to buy.
Several businesses and local communities are coming together to ease the financial burden as even simple things like school supplies can add a ton of stress to an already stressful situation.
From a Facebook post posted by Cony College and High School, there is a Grand Augusta back-to-school event at the Augusta Civic Center. The event is Sunday, August 15, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Each child will receive a backpack full of school supplies.
Families are encouraged to show up but are asked to stay in their car, and a volunteer will direct you to the location depending on the age of the child. Children receiving the supplies MUST be present.
