Mayor Jackson, along with event co-hosts Councilman Ossie Brown, Councilwoman Kathleen Schomaker, Councilman Michael Colaiacovo, and Council Candidate Berita Rowe, will be offering free school supplies to students in need.
Hundreds of FREE school supplies will be given out including: Bags, Notebooks, Pencils, Rulers, and more! This is a FREE event for the community and you do not have to pre-register. Hamden residents must provide photo I.D. and proof of residency for onsite registration.
“I want to focus my campaign, illustrating how government can help people. Hosting an event designed to help students with some free supplies for the upcoming school year is a symbol of this goal,” said Mayor Jackson.
