Loveland, Ohio - The 5th annual Back-To-School Fair will be Saturday August 16 from 2:00-4:00 in the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church located at 101 S. Lebanon Road. The goal of the program is to relieve the financial burden of back-to school-time on families while providing a child with a sense of pride.
In 2013, the event provided grade specific school supplies, backpacks, sweatshirts, dental supplies, coupons for shoes to over 200 students (Pre-K to Grade 12) from 113 families in the Loveland school district. As well, students and their families can visit booths from community partners on: Tutoring, Nutrition and additional programs.
Families will also have the opportunity to find out more about the services available through L.I.F.E. and The Loveland Initiative including the Food Pantry, the Resource Center and the Cool School Enrichment Program. Rounding out the day, community partners will be on hand to share information on safety, health and nutrition
