Fit 4 School events set for July 22 and Aug. 5

Two Fit 4 School events are set for area schoolchildren.

Chandler Law Firm and Alison South Marketing Group present the 13th annual Fit 4 School event, which will provide free school supplies, health screenings and haircuts to Aiken County students.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, July 22, at the Aiken County Family
YMCA, 621 Trolley Line Road, Graniteville.

School supplies will be handed out in a fast, easy drive-thru. Superheroes and fairy tale
characters will be on hand, and Papa John’s Pizza on University Parkway will provide
refreshments. Free haircuts and health screenings will be provided inside the YMCA.

“I’m a firm believer in supporting the community that has supported you,” Aiken attorney
Everett Chandler said. “Thanks to our many sponsors, we help close to a thousand
students each year get supplies they might not be able to afford otherwise.”

The second event will be held in Augusta Aug. 5.

Hawk Law Group and Alison South Marketing Group will present the fourth annual Fit 4 School event from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 5, at James Brown Arena, 601 Seventh

Similar to the Aiken event, there will be school supply giveaway, superheroes and haircuts given inside the arena.

“It takes a lot of supplies to go back to school, and that can be difficult for many local families to
afford,” said attorney Reid Sanders, a partner in the Hawk Law Group. “We are happy to be
able to be a sponsor and give local parents one less thing to worry about as their kids start the
school year.”
