POCAHONTAS – The 10th annual Randolph County Backpack-2-School event will be held Aug. 1 at West Ridge Church of Christ from 8 a.m. to noon. It will be drive-thru only and kids must be present to receive supplies.

The summer is passing quickly and it will soon be time for parents and children to begin the process of getting ready for school to start. Getting ready for the beginning of the school year by purchasing school supplies is a very costly endeavor and is difficult for families, especially those with several children. Often children have outgrown clothing and shoes and parents find themselves struggling with those needs also.
