Local businesses give back
Parents who may be struggling to foot the bill for the numerous school supplies required as school gears back up will have a helping hand.
For the first time, three local businesses will host the “Save Our Block Fun Day” at 3 p.m. Saturday at 300-304 S. Farmerville St. This is the area in front of the three sponsoring businesses, which are 1st A+ Alliance Personal Care, LLC., Y2Kuts Barber and Beauty and Morris’son T-Shirts.
LaShunta Pringle, program director at 1st A+ Alliance Personal Care, LLC., said the event will feature jumpers, a dunking booth, food, door prizes and bags of free school supplies.
The event is open to the public, and Pringle said anyone who needs school supplies is welcome to attend.
