For All Seasons will host its annual School Supplies Giveaway and Resource Fair on Wednesday, August 16 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Idlewild Park in Easton. Talbot County Department of Social Services is a key partner, contributing to the purchase of hundreds of backpacks pre-stuffed with supplies for community children in need. In addition to the backpacks and school supplies, the event will offer community resources, free Italian ice, movie theater popcorn, snacks, schoolyard games, and a raffle. Last year’s event drew over 800 participants.
“Our School Supplies Giveaway and Resource Fair meets an important need in our community while also sharing important community resources with the public. It also provides our agency with an opportunity to share important mental health information at the start of the school year to help families navigate any mental health needs they may have,” states Katie Theeke, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at For All Seasons.
