The second annual South King County Back2School Resource Fair will be held on Saturday, Aug. 24 at Federal Way High School.
The event is hosted by the A. Philip Randolph Institute Seattle Chapter along with other organization partners. Last year, the organizations served over 400 students with backpacks, supplies, clothes, new shoes, professional haircuts and styling. With nearly 800 people in attendance, the community tapped into local vendors and resources.
Organizers said the event this year will be even bigger, with a bigger space. In addition to the backpack and clothing giveaway, beautician school volunteers, homeless and housing assistance resources, various labor unions will host workshops, host a booth on job opportunities, serving as volunteers and delivering supplies gathered within the union halls.
This event is open to the public.
The event is set for 12-4 p.m. Aug. 24 at Federal Way High School, 30611 16th Ave. S., Federal Way.
