The event represents the collaborative effort of the Back to School Consortium members to support Shoreline and Lake Forest Park families in need with backpacks filled with school supplies, clothing assistance, haircuts, and a resource fair. The Lake Forest Park Rotary Club will serve food at the event. For background about the event, visit the website.
