(DeLand, FL) – With about two months left before students return to class, DeLand area parents and children will soon begin the annual hunt for school supplies.
Fortunately, the City of DeLand will have them covered.
Beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday, July 21, the City of DeLand and Spring Hill Neighborhood Association, will hand out roughly 1,000 backpacks at the 8th Annual Mayor’s Backpack Giveaway. The event will be at Earl Brown Park, 750 South Alabama Avenue.
The backpacks will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis, so parents and children will want to come early. Those waiting in line will receive one voucher ticket per student to ensure they receive a backpack.
After backpacks are given out, parents and children will be able to visit other vendors giving out various school supplies near the Earl Brown Park amphitheater.
For those seeking additional information, please contact the Spring Hill Resource Center at 386-740-0808.
