ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester Regional Health is hosting a free event on Friday where families can connect with community resources—and get supplies for the upcoming school year.

Each student will receive a free backpack filled with school supplies, and children of all ages will be able to fill a bag with gently used clothing to take home.

The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is being held at the St. Mary’s Campus parking lot, 89 Genesee St, Rochester, NY 14611.
