School is just around the corner, and not everyone is ready.
School supplies, clothing and other necessities can create a financial hurdle for already-stressed household budgets. Some families simply don’t have the extra money.
That’s why the Strive to Thrive Resource Fair was created. The free biannual event will be hosted by Douglas County’s Community of Care Network from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, July 27 at Cherry Hills Community Church, 3900 Grace Blvd., in Highlands Ranch.
The event provides school supplies, food and nutrition assistance, emergency assistance applications, employment opportunities and more to Douglas County families and residents experiencing hard times.
No appointment or registration is required to attend the fair and connect with more than 20 area organizations on site that have a desire to help. Attendees seeking school supplies must preregister with the Foundation for Douglas County Schools.
