Boys & Girls Club to give back-to-school help

BY CAMILLIA LANHAM

With that August rush to get ready for the new school year just around the corner, the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Maria is asking for donations to fund a back-to-school shopping spree.

The club is asking sponsors to donate $100 per member to help those who can’t afford basic school necessities.

On the day of the event, children will receive a $100 gift card to spend with their mentor at a local department store and a backpack filled with school supplies. Before the shopping spree, club members and mentors will get a sponsored breakfast at the club at 901 N. Railroad Ave.

The Boys & Girls Club will provide transport to the Santa Maria JC Penney. The event runs from 8 to 10 a.m. on Aug. 4. Participants are asked to RSVP no later than Friday, July 19.

For more information call 922-7163.
