The Ferndale Public Market is hosting a barbeque and back-to-school donation drive Saturday, August 10 from 3-5 p.m. to benefit low-income children in the Ferndale School District.
“Farmers and vendors are extending the market hours so the public can stop by and enjoy hot dogs and sliders,” said Rick LaFave of the Ferndale Public Market Board. “We are hoping for a great turnout, with people donating new school supplies for Ferndale families who need help.”
Supplies that are particularly needed include:
- #2 Pencils
- Colored Pencils
- Wide & Thin Markers
- Glue Sticks
- Pencil Boxes
- Loose Leaf Paper
- Spiral Notebooks
- Pencil Sharpeners
- Ballpoint Pens
- Yellow Highlighters

Cash donations and checks are also being accepted. Checks should be made out to the Ferndale Family Community Fund. 100% of these donations will be used to purchase school supplies.
