The Kokomo Rescue Mission will host back-to-school assistance events at three separate locations next week.

Income-qualified students can receive new shoes, socks and undergarments for the coming school year. Students will also receive a clothing voucher for gently used clothes from the Care & Share Store.

Events will be held on the following dates:

  • 3 to 7 p.m. July 20, at Taylor Elementary School, 5500 Wea Drive
  • 3 to 7 p.m. July 21, Carver Center, 1030 N. Purdum St.
  • 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. July 22 and 3 to 6 p.m. July 23 at Grace United Methodist Church, 219 W. Mulberry St.

Students must be between 5 and 18 years of age and accompanied by parent or guardian who has a photo ID.

Parents and/or guardians must also show proof of income, student’s birth date, birth certificate and social security card.

The Indiana Immunization Coalition will hold a vaccine clinic during the events on July 20-22.
