GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) The average family spends $600 per child for back to school supplies. That’s not realistic for many families, and that’s why Kingdom Life Ministries and the Community Development Corporation are holding their seventh annual Back to School Carnival and Backpack Giveaway.
The carnival is on Saturday, August 1 from noon to 2 p.m. at 2317 Kalamazoo Ave. SE in Grand Rapids. It’s open to anyone in the greater Grand Rapids area. Families can get backpacks filled with school supplies for their kids along with haircuts, games, prizes, rides, activities, and food. The event is free!
