LAKEWOOD, WA — The Caring for Kids Ready to Learn Fair is set for Saturday, Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Lochburn Middle School (5431 Steilacoom Blvd. SW). This free event gives kids an opportunity to start school right with clothing, school supplies, hair cuts, immunizations (bring immunization records), eye screenings, hygiene products, books and food.
The event, sponsored by Caring for Kids and the City of Lakewood, is open to students who qualify for free or reduced lunch and attend school in Clover Park, Steilacoom or University Place School Districts.
This year, the Kiwanis Club provided over 500 refurbished bicycles and the Lakewood Fire Department is selling $6 bicycle helmets.
