Free school supplies to be distributed at community back-to-school fair
Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center is making back-to-school shopping stress-free this year with its Back-to-School Drive-Thru Festival. This free event offers registered attendees a backpack filled with school supplies for the upcoming academic year in a “drive-thru” procedure in the community center’s parking lot. Students may also receive other necessary items such as school uniforms, socks and underwear while supplies last.
Parents can register their children here. Registration ends on July 30.
The MLK Back-to-School Drive-Thru Festival is also looking for donations and volunteers. Donations of socks, underwear, t-shirts and undershirts can be delivered to the MLK, Jr. Community Center (2922 MLK Boulevard, Dallas, TX 75215) Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., or on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
