School is just more than three weeks from beginning, and members of the community are working together to be sure all of the students have the school supplies they need before the first day.
The local group, I Support My Community, will be hosting a Stuff the School Bus event Sunday from 1 to 7 p.m. in the Walmart parking lot on CC Camp Road. An Elkin City Schools bus will be on site to hold the collected school supply items from members of the community.
Also, donations can be delivered to Midtown Barber on East Main Street in downtown Elkin until Aug. 20 for those who may not be able to make the Stuff the Bus event this weekend.
On Aug. 21, I Support My Community will host its annual bookbag and school supply giveaway at 4 p.m. in the Century Link parking lot, on North Bridge Street near Elkin Town Hall. Free hot dogs and drinks will be provided as well.
