Flagler Schools held a Back to School Drive-Thru for families Aug. 13, at the Hidden Trails Community Center.
The day before, on Aug. 12, 359 bags were distributed to families at the Carver Community Center. The bags contained school supplies as well as a list of mental health resources and food pantries, the 2020-2021 school calendar, internet safety information, and other resources. Counseling services were also available at the Connect Bus.
“It is fulfilling to provide and refer services to the community,” Brandy Williams, a Counselor Services adviser, said.
“It is always good to have a personal connection while being safe,” added Sabrina Cosby, Flagler Schools’ administrative coordinator for communications and special projects.
The Police Athletic League also handed out craft bags, which kids can use to learn to make crafts with deputies online at 3 p.m. every weekday next week on the Flagler Sheriff Police Athletic League’s Facebook page.
The campus of Wadsworth Elementary and Buddy Taylor Middle schools will host a drive-thru 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 19, and Wadsworth Park in Flagler Beach will host one Aug. 20 at the same times.
