Thomasville, GA - This weekend is the 8TH Annual Back To School Blitz hosted by Thomas County Family Connection, Thomasville & Thomas County Schools. Folks are encouraged to come out and get some free school supplies.
The event will take place Saturday, August 2ND at the MacIntyre Park Middle School Gym. Organizers told us it's a great way for parents to get free school supplies for their children. Paper, pencils, pens and folders will be given out.
Organizers expect more than 2,000 bags will be given out to students. The event starts at 9:00AM and parents must be present with their child.
"Saturday Morning at MacIntyre Park Middle School in the gym. Please parents, children, students enter through the stadium parking lot," said Kathy Megahee, Thomas County Family Connection Director.
Also this weekend Grady County is hosting their own Back To School Blitz at Cairo High School. That event goes from 9:00AM-11:00AM.
If you miss out on the freebies don't worry you can still take advantage of Georgia's back to school tax free holiday. It's this Friday and Saturday.
