It’s hard to believe, but it’s almost back-to-school season! In just a few short weeks, the kids will be getting ready to head back for another amazing school year. This time of year always puts a strain on a family’s budget. Getting kids ready for heading back to school is expensive. You’ve got school supplies, new clothing, shoes – just the added stress can make this time of year difficult.

Did you know that every year Tabitha’s Way in Spanish Fork hosts a backpack giveaway for underprivileged school-aged children in the Utah County area? Through the generous donations of community partners, they were able to provide more than 600 backpacks to children in need last year. These backpacks are brand new and filled with school supplies like pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, rulers, paper, notebooks and more. But they don’t stop there. They also provide underwear and socks and have free screenings at the event, too!

r

This year, the event will be held on Aug. 6 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Veterans Memorial Building, 400 N. Main, Spanish Fork. They are hoping to blast away last year’s record by providing more than 900 backpacks to local school-aged children. If you are in need of school supplies for your children, plan on being at the event. Do you have what it takes to be an amazing volunteer? Call today to learn more about our volunteer opportunities at 801-709-8573 or email info@tabithasway.org.
