SHREVEPORT, LA --- SporTran, Healthy Blue Louisiana, and SPAR are hosting a public back to school event this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hattie Perry Recreation Center at 4300 Ledbetter in Shreveport.
Attendees may visit with community vendors, enjoy free snow cones, and pick up limited free school supply kits given away on a first come, first served basis. Children must be present and accompanied by an adult to receive their supply kit.
“Back-to-school time can be hectic and expensive for parents,” said SporTran CEO Dinero’ Washington. “When Healthy Blue shared they were organizing a school supply giveaway, we jumped at the chance to partner with them and Shreveport Parks and Recreation for this event. These days, money does not stretch as far as it used to. Our goal is to make the transition from summer to school easier for those in our community who need help.”
