As students prepare to head back to school, sometimes getting those required school supplies can put financial pressure on families. Walton EMC Employee Charities and Barrelle Roofing are teaming up in a Back to School event Friday to help get school supplies to local children.
From 4 – 6 p.m. on July 19, at Felker Park in Monroe, there will be a giveaway of about 2,000 bookbags filled with school supplies. Please note a child has to be present to receive the bookbags and supplies. Volunteers with Barrelle Roofing and Walton EMC also will be on hand to serve hot dogs, chips and coca-cola products – as long as supplies last.
Felker Park is located at 725 S. Madison Ave. in Monroe.
