Times each day are 9:00 am until 4:00 pm. This event is for families in need with children from Kindergarten through high school.

Families who pre-register will be given time slots to come and "shop". Other families can come from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm on Saturday.

We will be giving one new outfit (jeans and shirt), new socks and underwear, a backpack, school supplies, and toiletries. We will also have gently-used jackets, coats and hoodies and some used shoes to be distributed. No other used clothing this year.
