School supply giveaway looks to help Warren families

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

For many families back-to-school is more than just the excitement of beginning another new year of learning, there's also the worry of finances. 

National studies suggest that the average American family will spend $500 per child for back-to-school shopping. 

While those figures include the high range technology purchases as well, experts also say there is little doubt that for many families purchasing new school supplies can be an unrealistic strain. 

The Warren Family Mission is hoping to help as many as they can. 

Thursday, August 10th from 2 pm until 4 pm the Mission will be passing out backpacks and school supplies on a first come, first serve basis. Volunteers will be passing out backpacks with supplies geared toward grade school, middle school, and high school. 

The mission says anyone who wants to try to get a backpack is welcome, however, they must provide a medical card or birth certificate for each child. 

The kids must also be born from 1999-2012 and must be at least five- years-old by September 30, 2017. 

They'll also be handing out pizza from the McDonald Ianazone's. 

There are a limited number of backpacks and supplies.
