Backpack Giveaway

Backpack Giveaway

Hope your summer has been going great so far! For those with kids, you may already be thinking about shopping for back-to-school. St. George’s Episcopal Church knows that this can be an expensive time of year for many families, so they are hosting a Backpack Giveaway on Saturday, August 17, from 11.30 am to 1.30 pm. School supplies are included with the backpack.

Location: 14-20 27 Ave (at 14th Street), Astoria. The giveaway is open to Grades K – 8, and the event will take place rain or shine.
