For many parents, back to school can be a time of stress and anxiety. The long, unnerving supply lists can seem like a bank breaking situation, especially for those who struggle to just get by. Multiple organizations in town are combating this crisis to ensure that every student can be ready for school.
Abundant Grace is a centrally located church that will be giving away 150 backpacks. The backpacks will be ready for pick-up July 29 at the 9:30 a.m. service. The day is open to all children who are in need of a backpack. Abundant Grace is located next to Gallaghers Pub and Grill.
The Havasu Community Health Foundation will host a “Back to School Health Fair” Aug. 4. The event will be from 8 a.m. to noon at the Aquatic Center. The fair will provide free immunizations to school-aged children, free sports physicals to the first 100 children, free bicycle helmets and more.
