Reminder about School Dressing Days
Just a reminder: Tomorrow (6.30) is preregistration for School Dressing Days, which provides clothes and school supplies for low-income families.
Preregistration will be held at the Bragg Hill Family Life Center, Saturday, June 30, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Children need not attend pre-registration. However, parents or guardians coming to preregister must bring ID, verifying residence for themselves and children, plus one form of ID for each child (report card, Social Security card, birth certificate or Medicaid card).
Families from Fredericksburg as well as the counties of Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George and Caroline are eligible to participate. Eligible children from preschool through high school may receive school clothing and supplies at no cost. Children must have ID (report card, Social Security card, birth certificate, or Medicaid card) and be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Adults must bring verification of residence (no P.O. boxes).
School Dressing Days is sponsored by the Interfaith Community Council, which includes about 40 area religious groups. For details, call 540/373-2294 or 540/785-2682.
