The annual Shoreline Back To School event provides school supplies, hair cuts, and clothing assistance to Shoreline School District families with low incomes and/ or circumstances that make it challenging to adequately prepare their children for school. To register for the Aug. 28 event, visit the Back To School Consortium Web site, or call the info line at 206-393-4916.

The event will be held from 1 to 4 pm August 28 at the North City building, 816 NE 190th, Shoreline.

Donations of backpacks, school supplies, hygiene products, socks and underwear can be made at the Center for Human Services, 17018 15th Ave NE in Shoreline.

Through June 25, high quality gently used or new children's and teen clothing can be dropped off at The WORKS, located in the North City Elementary Portables, 816 NE 190th Street, Shoreline, Wednesday evenings 5 - 8 pm or by appointment by leaving a message on the Shoreline PTA Council, The WORKS voice mail 206-393-4916 ext. 5.
