The Bluffton Area Community Association will present its third annual back-to-school "fun day" from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 3 at the Sam Bennett Sports Complex on Buck Island Road.

The event provides free book bags filled with school supplies to families with children in pre-kindergatten through high school that need the assistance.

Last year, with the support of local businesses and donors, organizers provided 240 book bags to families. They hope to provide 400 book bags at this year's event, according to a news release.

The event will feature live music, free food, waterslide, face painting and prize give-a-aways, according to the release.

To volunteer: contact Jackie Brown at 843-227-0485. To donate: contact Sharon Brown at 843-368-6755.
