Southwire’s 7th Annual Back To School Giveaway Set For July 29

For the past seven years, Southwire of Douglas has made an impact throughout the community by getting students ready to start the new school year with all of the supplies they will need.
What began as a small effort to help alleviate the stress endured by some local families who struggle with the costs of going back to school has turned into an annual event that students and parents can look forward to.
For the past seven years, Southwire of Douglas has made an impact throughout the community by getting students ready to start the new school year with all of the supplies they will need. 
Each year, volunteers from Southwire set up a shop at the Central Square Complex in downtown Douglas to hand out supplies to students who need them. 
During last year’s giveaway, all of their supplies were given away in just over three hours. Along with school supplies, the children will receive a back-pack and a free hair cut. 
The giveaway is open to children in grades K through 12 each year.
The annual giveaway will take place on Friday, July 29, 2016, from 7:00 a.m. until noon at Central Square Complex. Hot dogs and water will be provided.
