July 14 is the big day, said Melissa McFerrin-Warrack, events coordinator for Kukui Grove Center.
“We distribute the school supplies next Saturday,” McFerrin-Warrack said. “This is a big day with a lot of the students needing supplies to go back to school. Because each school has different needs, we tried to come up with a universal list, and keep it neutral so there is no girl, or boy, separation.”
The big day starts at 9 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m. when the supplies will have been distributed.
There will be also entertainment, a health fair and a crew from The Kauai Film Academy will be video taping the event as well as having crew members interview patrons.
“All of this is possible because of the generous support from the community,” said McFerrin-Warrack. “They are doing a lot — from helping to set up the distribution to contributions to purchase the needed supplies. And, the best part, everything is free.”
