For many kids in the Caldwells, it’s hard to imagine the first day of school without a new backpack brimming with supplies.
But there are families who will struggle to check all the items off a child’s classroom supply list.
While shopping for your own children and grandchildren, pick up extra supplies for those in need this week. Bring them to the Caldwells Patch table at the Caldwell Farmers's Market on Friday, August 17, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Backpacks, notebooks, binders, pencils, pens, and crayons are just some of the items suggested. There will be Patch giveaways as a thank you for your donation.
The Caldwell Farmers Market is located in the Smull Avenue Parking Lot, behind the shops between Smull Avenue and Personete Street.
