Clothing and backpack give-a-way Saturday

Parents looking to complete some back-to-school shopping will have a very affordable and close-to-home opportunity to do so this weekend.

Grace Baptist Church will host a Kids’ Clothing Closet and Backpack and school supplies giveaway from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 24, at the church on Queen Street.

Fall and winter clothing for children will be available and free backpacks containing school supplies will be available for children in grades kindergarten through sixth.

There is no cost, although organizers ask that children be present to pick out their backpack.

Anyone who would like to donate clothing for the event can do so from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22 and from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23.
