The Nash County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) will be hosting a Back-To-School-Book-Bag-Giveaway alongside one of their “Hot Dogs for Kids” events on August 11, 2018, from 11am to 1pm.
The book bag giveaway and free hot dogs for kids will both be held in the west side parking lot of the Nash County Courthouse Complex, 222 W Washington Street, Nashville, North Carolina. NCSO personnel will be passing out book bags containing 18 pieces of school supplies.
NCSO school supplies and meals have come from a special fund, with provisions given by groceries and other businesses. Personnel give their time for these community-oriented events.
According to a spokesperson, the Sheriff’s Office does not ask for donation, but community members and businesses can contribute. Officer David Wooten said, “If there is a organization that would like to join us in the event, we will be glad to tell them how much we are able to purchase [book] bags for per case and 12 bags come to a case.”
Contact NCSO via their non-emergency telephone number — 252.459.4121 — if you wish to help them provide school supplies to kids around Nash County.
Book bags will be distributed to students on a first come, first served basis.
