(BEDFORD) – The Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence County is hosting their Back to School Bash Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Limestone Unit.
“Our back to school bash allows us an excellent opportunity to provide necessary school supplies to our local youth while giving us an extra platform to provide information to our parents and community about our afterschool programming, facilities, staff, and local partners,” says Frank Decker, Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence County. “Parents may also register their children during the 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. times slots.”
The Club will be signing children up for their afterschool programs, giving tours of the facility, answering any questions parents may have and handing out backpacks and school supplies to those in need.
“We have 30 Club Kids that we know for sure will need help getting their supplies,” says Timber Browning, Resource Development and Marketing Director.
