Back-to-school season is fast approaching and with the rising cost of goods everywhere, some folks may have a hard time affording new school supplies. That's why the Warren Family Mission is here to help families in need.

The Warren Family Mission will be holding a backpack and school supply giveaway on Friday, August 5 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at 155, Tod Ave. NW in Warren.

The Mission will be giving away free backpacks with school supplies stuffed inside for students.

This event will be conducted on a first-come-first-serve basis and sign up will take place on Friday beginning at 1:00 p.m. until supplies last.

If your child is not with you at the time of pickup, parents will need to bring a birth certificate or medical cards, along with a photo identification to receive school supplies.

The Mission plans to pass out over 400 backpacks filled with school supplies during the event.
