Live Oak — Book bags full of supplies will be given to students in need at the annual Back to School Bash on Saturday, August 13 at the Suwannee High School auditorium in Live Oak. The bash is sponsored by the Suwannee Coalition, which partners community churches, businesses, organizations, individuals and the local school board to bring about the event. Promoting self-confidence in students and a prepared start to the school year, the bash is open to all students K-12. Free book bags and school supplies will be available from 9 a.m. until noon and will be given out on a first-come first-served basis. The coalition asks that only students who have a need attend, though no one will be turned away as long as supplies last.
