Purchasing school supplies can be a financially stressful time for families. Alderman Cavalier Johnson of the Milwaukee Common Council is inviting the public to the Midtown Center Back-2-School “Superstars and Supplies” giveaway event on Saturday, August 19, from 11 a.m to 2 p.m.
Alderman Johnson says 600 kids ages 5 to 14 years old will receive free backpacks and school supplies, in person only. “This is a great support to families, and a positive way for kids to kick off the school year. I am grateful to our event sponsor Midtown Center,” Alderman Johnson said.
This will be a fun event for students and families. Attendees will be given a raffle ticket to enter for prizes including gift cards for back-to-school items and Milwaukee Bucks tickets. Plus, an annual talent show featuring local students will also take place, hosted by Andrea Williams of Energy 106.9 FM and Jammin’ 98.3 FM.
