The Love Ashland Network’s ninth annual school supplies giveaway will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 5, at the South Valley Community Human Services building, 1658 Ashland St.

LAN will distribute 150 backpacks loaded with basic school supplies to anyone who needs them, no applications required. Since supplies are limited, those in need are encouraged to arrive early.

The supplies inside each backpack are valued at $20 and include notebooks, paper, pens, erasers, pencil pouches and other items suitable for students in grades K through 8.

Established in 2008, Love Ashland Network is a group of anonymous Ashlanders concerned about the well being of low-income residents in Ashland. It partnered with South Valley Human Services for the annual event.
