Sen. Angela Walton Mosley Invites Community to Book Bag Giveaway Event

JEFFERSON CITY — State Sen. Angela Walton Mosley, D-Florissant, invites you to attend the 12th Annual Community Fair on Aug. 18 at the James J. Eagan Civic Center in Florissant. Students from the Ferguson-Florissant, Jennings, Hazelwood and Riverview Garden school districts are eligible to receive a free book bag and other school supplies, as well as enter a bike giveaway.

Individuals who wish to donate school supplies may drop them off from 2:00 to 6:30 p.m. and those interested in receiving school supplies may pick them up from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m.

“This time of year is exciting as kids and parents begin their preparations for a new school year, but it can also be a time of stress as families budget to afford the long list of school supplies,” Sen. Mosley said. “I organized this school supplies drive with a few of my colleagues in the Missouri House of Representatives to help alleviate this stress and foster a sense of community among parents and teachers.”

There will be other resources available at this event, including legal services and information about Medicaid expansion.
