The new school year is quickly approaching, which means it’s time for school supply shopping.
Alpha Media Shreveport has teamed up with Caddo Sheriff’s Safety Town for a Back To School
Give-Away of up to 500 backpacks. Students from Caddo, Bossier, and the surrounding areas
will receive free daily essentials needed for the classroom to begin the school year.
LSU Oschner and the LA National Guard COVID Strike Team will provide free COVID testing &
vaccinations. Bos-Mans Barber college will be on hand to provide free haircuts and Pat Goins
Beauty school will do free nail painting.
The Southern Shreveport Jags Football team and multiple partners will team up for this great
citywide event. School supply drives allow the community to help children in need begin the
school year with all of the tools they need for academic success. Whether classes are online or
in-person, students can start the semester ready to succeed.
The event will occur on Saturday, August 7, from 10 am-1 pm at Caddo Sheriff’s Safety Town.
