The next few days are busy ones for parents and students as they prepare for the return to the classroom.

Mount Hermon Ministries has set up a one-stop shop for parents to get school supplies and some immunizations if they need them.

The Mount Hermon Ministries Annual Community Fun Day is back after a two-year break due to the pandemic, said Pastor William Glover.

At least 500 Fort Myers families will walk away with school supplies.

“We recognize this is the time of year,  there are a lot of expenses related to going back to school,” Glover said. “Anytime you can provide relief to families, that is going to be welcomed.”

Families can also get dental screening for their children.

The clinical services will be provided by Premier Mobile Health Services.

The whole thing is part their first Back to School Health Fair and Backpack Giveaway.

The event ends at 1 p.m.

Mount Hermon Ministries is located at 2856 Douglas Street.

This weekend is also the final weekend for the Back to School Tax-Free Holiday.
