Back To School Guide: Win Money, Free Supplies, Etc.

For parents, it's the most wonderful time of the year! Kids are going back to school!

So I'm just putting together a little guide to help you out:

-THIS WEEKEND (7/31) kicks off the 10 day tax holiday in the state of Florida. You can avoid paying sales taxes on items like clothes, shoes and backpacks that cost $60 or less, as well as school supplies that cost $15 or less.

-There are many Back To School events around town, like the Community Back To School Bash. This is taking place this Saturday July 31st at 10a at the Sulzbacher Village. They're offering free physicals, school supplies and more. For a long list of backpack giveaways and back to school events around town, click HERE

-Cleaning out your kids closet to get ready for new back to school clothes? Donate your kids shoes to Kicks For The Kids. Kicks For Kids is collecting shoes for kids in kindergarten through highschool and those shoes will be donated to kids who might not have shoes to wear to school. Drop off locations include: The News4Jax studio, Fields Auto Group Dealerships, 121 Financial Credit Union Branches. Donation drive ends on August 1 and the shoe giveaway will be August 4th-7th. If you're looking to receive a pair of shoes for your child, you must first make an appointment HERE, then you'll be able to pick up at The Bethel Church at 215 Bethel Baptist St.

-If you prefer to have your kid wear a mask while attending school, get them this cool DUUUVAL face mask to represent, HERE!
