LOUISVILLE, Ky. (July 10, 2023) – Donate Life Kentucky will offer free school supplies and giveaways to children and families, along with a free movie night at Price Elementary School on Saturday, July 22, at 6:30 p.m. The event, now in its second year, aims to provide children in our community with important educational materials in a safe and fun environment before the start of the school year.
Prior to the showing of Disney’s ‘Soul,’ kids will receive free school supplies, face painting, treats from the Kona Ice Truck and more.
“Our connection to the community is a vital part of our mission,” said Shelley Snyder, Executive Director of Donate Life KY. “While educating the neighborhoods that we serve and supporting special events to promote donation throughout Kentucky are all part of that, we also know the financial burden that can come for families at the start of a new school year and want to do our part to ease that stress.”
On top of the movie night event at Price Elementary, Donate Life KY is also conducting a back-to-school giveaway at St. Stephen Church Hardin County Campus in Elizabethtown on Saturday, July 29, to support families in the area who are also getting ready to head back to school soon. This event is scheduled from 12-3 p.m. A back-to-school giveaway was also held at St. Stephen Church Southern Indiana Campus this past weekend.
Families are welcome to drop by to pick up materials anytime during the event; however, supplies will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Parents are encouraged to bring chairs or blankets; outside non-alcoholic beverages and snacks will be permitted. Price Elementary is located at 5001 Garden Green Way, Louisville, KY 40218. The movie showing will be at sundown.
