After two successful school supply giveaways, Mary Gonzales and her family announced the final giveaway date as Aug. 18.

On that Saturday, families and students of all ages in need can come to collect final supplies at Cahoon Park near the former Cahoon Pool at 1 p.m. Pre-registration is not required for this giveaway.

The family hosted one event at the Elks Lodge on July 24 and another at a car show on Aug. 4.

Gonzales thanks the community for its past support and said donations are still being accepted.

She said the drive is in need of backpacks, rulers, scissors, and glue sticks. Stores are also welcome to donate. Monetary donations are acceptable, too and checks can be written to the Community Volunteer Program.

For more information, Michele Martinez, Mary and Gina Gonzales can be reached at 575-624-7579. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 2790, Roswell, NM 88202, or delivered in person to 1101 Caminisito St., Roswell.
