Families can get their kids ready to head back to the classroom by attending State Senator Meg Loughran Cappel and State Representative Natalie Manley’s Back to School Fair on July 29.
“With the school year right around the corner, it’s a perfect time to have an event that serves as a central location for connecting families with programs in our community,” said Loughran Cappel (D-Shorewood). “We want families to have a chance to get free school supplies and useful resources all in one place.”
The free event will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 29 at the University of St. Francis St. Clare Campus, located at 1550 Plainfield Road in Joliet. Loughran Cappel and Manley will be joined by community partners who can provide resources and supplies for students to use when they return to the classroom.
Students can receive free school supplies at the fair and learn about a number of services offered by organizations in the community. Students and families visiting the fair will be able to “Touch-a-truck,” enjoy food from Truckin Delicious Food Truck, engage with Bernie from the University of St. Francis, receive resources form local libraries and organizations, and more.
