Saturday, August 6 is the day! The Family Affair will kick-off at 8 a.m. and last until 11 AM CT at the W.T. Neal Civic Center in Blountstown.
The Calhoun County Children’s Coalition has a grand day planned for Calhoun County’s families. A giant slide, pony rides, face painting, and, of course, giveaways from over 20 agencies, businesses, churches and organizations, will be included. Bags of school supplies will be available for students in all grades, pre-k through 12th. The supplies are appropriate for each grade. All of this and much more for a small donation of $1 per child.
The Children’s Coalitions requests that those of you who can please assist families in need to come to this event. No family in Calhoun County should be left out. The coalition, with the assistance of our partners will be providing over 1000 bags of supplies for our children to begin school this year.
Here are things that you need to remember: In order to collect your FREE school supplies, the children must be present with an adult. Each family will be asked to go around to different booths to assist us in getting information about our community. This will help us to help our community more in the future. After you have been around to the different booths you can get your supplies. It is that simple. Children’s Coalition members look forward to seeing you!
