Back 2 School Bash Planned to Help Low-Income Families in Craig County
Summer has flown by and it’s time for parents and kids to start getting ready to go back to school.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 12, Craig County students from Pre-K through 12th grade are invited to come be a part of this fun and helpful event at the Craig County Fairgrounds.
The Back 2 School Bash will include lots of free giveaways, including backpacks, school supplies and even brand new shoes and socks for every student who needs them.
Local hairstylists will be giving students free haircuts. They will provide as many haircuts as time allows during the bash.
There will also be games, inflatables, face and nail painting, as well as lots of other activities.
And, what’s a bash without food? Cotton candy, hot dogs, chips and bottled water will all be available for attendees of the Back 2 School Bash.
Organizers are planning on 600 students attending the Back 2 School Bash. Everything will be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.
All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
