Free school supplies, food in Lincoln City

Lincoln City Parks and Recreation has announced its first ever Lincoln City “Back to School Giveaway Party.”

The event takes place on Saturday, Sept. 12, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Lincoln City Community Center parking lot. Families will receive one bag of school supplies per student and one bag of food per family. 

The event will also include free, socially distanced activities for children and families, such as music and dancing, an outdoor obstacle course and chalk art. 

The parking lot will serve as a concrete canvas, with parking spaces marked off for families or individuals to decorate with chalk art (chalk will be provided). There will also be a sidewalk chalk obstacle course for children to enjoy. The event ends with a socially distanced dance party, led by community center staff and volunteers. Per the governor’s orders, all attendees are asked to follow safety guidelines and wear a mask.

No registration is required — just show up. However, items will be handed out on a first come, first served basis. There are 150 bags of school supplies and 100 bags of food.

Lincoln City Parks and Recreation staff members expressed appreciation to TLC Credit Union, the Albertson’s Foundation, the Kiwanis Club of Lincoln City, Lincoln City Safeway, Lincoln City Outlets and Newport Walmart for helping make this event happen.
