Pittsfield: Church to give away backpacks


First United Methodist Church, 55 Fenn St., will be offering a free pizza lunch and backpack giveaway from noon to 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20.

The church will be giving away about 90 backpacks filled with school supplies to preschool, elementary and middle schoolers.

FUMC has hosted free lunches for children five days a week through the summer for up to 100 kids. The backpack giveaway is a parting gift to these youngsters as they head back to school.

For more information, contact the Rev. Ralph Howe at 413-499-0866 or howerwiii@gmail.com.
