Registration Extended for Backpack and School Supply Giveaway at The Canby Center

About 200 kids are currently registered for tomorrow’s Backpack and School Supply Distribution at The Canby Center, but evidently, that’s not enough.

The Center received so many generous donations of backpacks and school supplies that they’ve extended registration until 5 p.m. today, in the hopes that more children and families can be served at tomorrow’s event.

Registration must be done on-site at 681 SW 2nd Avenue (behind McDonalds). It’s open to any and all Canby School District students, K-12.

The Canby Center’s Kathleen Hanberg, who is heading up the distribution this year, says tomorrow will be a fun community event, as the Canby Police Association will be on hand to barbecue, along with the Kona Ice truck and a photo booth.

The distribution will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22.
