McLaren Port Huron Foundation holds free backpack give away

Published on Monday, August 07, 2017
Port Huron, Mich.— The McLaren Port Huron Foundation’s Capac and Yale Community Health Team is hosting its annual Back to School backpack give away event at Capac Elementary School, 351 W. Kempf Court, on Friday, August 18, 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., or until supplies are gone.

This free event is coordinated to help children from low income families experience a successful start to school by providing them with a new backpack and necessary supplies to begin the new school year. Proof of St. Clair County residency is required, and children must be present to receive school supplies.

Backpacks filled with grade-appropriate school supplies will be distributed to school age students. A large food truck with added meat will distribute food from 10:30 a.m. – noon.

This year’s backpack give away is organized by the McLaren Port Huron Foundation’s Capac/Yale Community Health Team, Capac Chamber of Commerce, Four County Community Foundation, IPEX, and Lakestone Bank and Trust.
