The nonprofit Love, INC distributes free school supplies during the annual Stone County School Readiness Fair. This year's fair is Friday, August 5 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Reeds Spring High School.
This event is for children in grades K-12 who attend any school in Stone County, and qualify based on financial need. Students will receive a backpack, school supplies, shoes, socks, dental and vision screenings, and sports physicals if needed. The event also includes music, free food, and a bounce house.
More than 30 organizations will also be at the fair to provide families with information on a variety of topics. Walk-ins are welcome the day of the fair, but school supplies cannot be guaranteed.
