LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Arkansas Martin Luther King Jr. Commission is giving back to the youth before the school year begins with a back-to-school statewide supply tour.
The commission will host their Back to School Statewide Supply Tour, Saturday, August 13. The tour will go from noon to 3 p.m. at various locations throughout the state. Event planners said that free school supplies will be distributed at each location on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
Executive Director DuShun Scarbrough said the commission has partnered with Walmart and US Bank to provide families with school supplies and financial literacy.
“This is a great relief for parents who may already have challenges buying food, clothes, and getting haircuts for children, Scarbrough said. “What’s even more remarkable for this event is that we’ve added rural locations in Arkansas where the outreach is greatly needed.”
