á "Back2School" Festival Helps Hundreds Prepare for the New School Year á
á
Lines formed early for the Back2School festival, an event that provides donated school supplies, clothing, and information about community services for Watauga County families that need a little help to be ready for school. Spearheaded by Quiet Givers and assisted by a host of community agencies, local businesses, and volunteers, the event helped more than 700 students and their families. áGray, misty weather on the date of the event did not dampen turnout or spirits.á
In the auxiliary gym, ávolunteers handed out a wide variety of school supplies from a series of tables set up in a circle. áNotebooks, paper, pens and pencils, backpacks, and other materials were provided here.á Back2School also offered free haircuts for students in the high school's cosmetology area. áMore than 100 students were able to take advantage of this service by the time the event ended at 3 p.m.á
